comment Slow DNS response
That's still insufficient information - the desktops must have some DNS settings, even if they just get them from DHCP. Either way, I'd still recommend running a proper local DNS server. The DNS servers in gateway devices are notoriously unreliable and non-protocol conformant (see RFC 5625). Ob. disclaimer - I wrote that RFC.

comment What is happening with g.root-servers.net.?
FWIW, the g.root server was responding to DNS over TCP requests during the outage - it was only for UDP that it was unavailable.

comment Slow DNS response
and how do the DNS clients know which one they have to talk to? [ or does the SRX do the forwarding to OpenDNS ? ]

comment Slow DNS response
if the router doesn't have a DNS server, what DNS server are you actually using?

comment Setting up a bind forwarder, except for a domain
This is not the correct solution. Either get a proper router (see RFC 5625 on how bad the DNS proxies inside home routers are) or forward your queries to a real DNS server such as Google DNS or OpenDNS.

comment Do internet standards require reverse DNS for every device?
oops - my mistake, I was thinking 1034 + 1035, not 1033 !!
