I receive this message pretty often and i have absolutely no ideas why ...

I run FreeBSD 5.4-p13 with named  BIND 9.3.1. Could it be because i have 6 ip blocks on the same box ? and the named handles reverse dns entries for all of them ?

Does the mentioned named handle only reverse entries for couple of networks or it does recursuion too???

Poked timer is when something has been waited for for more than 15 seconds.

I assume you are on same machine exposing kernel traps. Bad RAM will explain such anomaly too.
