Odd SYSLOG entry - named

Postby w4kh » 2018-01-10 17:38

Recently, I am seeing a large number of messages in syslog that seem to occur rapidly in "bunches" on a fairly regular interval (1 hour apart):
Code: Select all

syslog:Jan 10 10:40:53 deb9301 named[785]: address not available resolving './NS/IN': 2001:500:2d::d#53

Odd part, to me, is I was not using the system between 00:00 and 07:30...
There is no mail server trying to receive or deliver email to or from this host (save for localhost emails from logwatch or tripwire)
I am running ExpressVPN, but these log entries started popping up quite some days after starting the VPN

The system seems to be working fine, but something must be awry, else these messages wouldn't be logged...
Ideas?
