What could be happenning is that your ISP is rotating his machines on

documentation in order for it updating your named config, and, very important, firewall config and then restarting both.

    No, I'm on a static IP, and the problem was two different
applications not sharing the same information- "host" could find it in a
flash, but Firefox wouldn't...even immediately after it.

Thankfully, "ncsd -i host" on the command line nailed it.

Thanks, though!

Given that nscd is the "problem", you can alter the time for which nscd caches failed DNS lookups. In /etc/nscd.conf change the timeout value in

negative-time-to-live hosts 300

to a smaller value than 300 seconds.
