Sure.  "valid=3s" This probably can be relaxed, yes.  The intent was to
prevent grouping too many connections on the same 8 or so IP's we get in a
single DNS query.

This is a nice pointer, thank you.  From documentation "One
megabyte of the cache contains about 4000 sessions."  This should definitely
be higher.  Don't know if it will play into the outage I had, but good to
get this set properly going forward.
