DNS stops resoving mx.com and mx.gov domains

I have a strange, new problem.  My network has been up for about 7 years with no DNS problems.  We us AD integrated DNS on Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise.  Our ISP is AT&T.  We host our Mexico users out of Houston via Terminal Services.  The only recent change is that I have now removed all DNS servers from Mexico.  About once a week my DNS server stops resoving mx.com and mx.gov domains.  I have to go to the DNS Server, clear the cache and restart the service and it works fine.  I have users all over the world and only have problems with these two domains.  Anyone have any ideas?

What errors/results do you see in the logs when it fails to resolve those domains?

I would first check your DNS Forwarders make sure you have the most updated forwarders listed
