I always find that these two hosts connect my firewall thru service is domain-udp.

-Looks to me to be simple DNS traffic. port 53 UDP protocol 7. You cannot resolve sites from the lan with regular DNS queries..

yes it does seem like DNS query packets..
DNS query uses UDP but DNS zone transfer uses TCP.
Is your servers a DNS server.. that would explain your ISP querying your server for xxx.com because your server is the authorative DNS server for xxx.com.
