My named is taking ~60% CPU on both cores (2 instances of named).
It is resolving ~12 domains per minute and has ~20 cached requests per domain within 5 minutes. The named cache size is 400MB.

Is there anything else I forgot to do?
Thank you!

You may have been hit by the leap second bug.

Run date -s "$(date -u)" from the commandline and see if that helps.
