The apparent problem is that there was a security hole found in the standard
named processes so the named application has been patched to prevent
recursive searches.  I was looking at 1) 2 levels up from me (the name server and not the name server) and
2) at my dynamic DNS management site (who probably patched also).

Thanks to Brett Lymn and Jeff Graham for letting me know about the patched
package so I could reconfigure properly.
