This is strange to me, but my DNS server on my network is periodically resolving public DNS really slow and sometimes timing out.  However, if I put Google's DNS servers as my primary DNS on my laptop, my laptop it is lightening fast.  What gives?  I tried clearing DNS cache on the server and rebooting it over the weekend, but it has not helped.

Extra info: my DNS server is on my Active Directory server and is Active Directory integrated.
