Amavis DNS query timeout

I don't see how the dig test has anything to do with amavis dns test.

The amavis dns lookup could have timeout but still succeeded in your  
dns cache server, and your dig would return that result instantly.

Without any more details, such as un-mung results, no more  
investigation can be done.
