Simple DNS question

I'm running the DNS that comes with NT 4.0 and have applied SP3 and a few
other recent hotfixes. DNS works flawlessly and has for quite a long time
now. I've noticed in the Event Viewer that there are yellow warning
messages that regard DNS (sometimes appearing a few times in a day and
other times once or twice a day).

Double clicking on these always produces the same error (1601):
DNS Server encountered bad packet from Packet
processing leads beyond packet length.

The address mentioned above is "" (one of KSU's DNS
servers). Does anyone have an idea of what's going on and/or what can be
done about it? It doesn't seem to be causing any problems here (at least
not that I'm aware of), but I'd at least like to know why almost every
yellow warning is related to that address.
