wondering if the lag is the server trying to identify inbound connection
(ie dns)

I believe if you look at /etc/xinetd.d/ipop3
service pop3
        socket_type             = stream
        wait                    = no
        user                    = root
        server                  = /usr/sbin/ipop3d
        log_on_success  += HOST DURATION
        log_on_failure  += HOST
        disable                 = no

that the log_on_success and log_on_failure stuff will cause it to try to
figure out who is connecting. 

for s & g's, try emptying them. i.e.
log_on_success +=
log_on_failure +=

or you could make sure that the desktops connecting are found in dns or
in /etc/hosts or however you've configured /etc/nsswitch.conf
