ISA 2006 blocking nslookup ls -d domain.com

I have a wierd problem.  I've allowed zone transfers from our primary DNS server to some specific IPs.  On of those IPs is a secondary DNS server that I control and is nat'd behind the same IP as my computer.  Zone transfers to this secondary DNS server are working fine and transfers are being requested from that server by the external IP of the primary dns server.  However when I do a nslookup to that same external IP and then "ls -d oneofourdomains.com" I get a strage response (see attached image).  If I do the same nslookup command to the servers interal IP (meaning I've taken the ISA firewall out of the equation) it works as it should (I see all zones).  I've tried disabling the dns filter but that didn't work.  Any thoughts?

Ok more to add.  It appears this is getting dropped because of :

No rule is shown so I'm still thinking this is a filter problem.

OK, I fixed it.  Other symtoms were 0x80074e24 FWX_E_CONNECTION_KILLED in the log.

In ISA Manager:
Configuration --> General -->
Enable Intrusion Detection and DNS Attach Detection -->
DNS Attacks Tab

I unchecked both "DNS host name overflow" and "DNS length overflow" (make sure  you wait a few seconds after applying this before trying again).  This makes some sense since this was a large domain, but I have no idea why this filter is being applied to OUTBOUND traffic.
