Thu Jun 26 14:26:23 2014 Critical: Reached maximum failures querying DNS server

Our default DNS failure rate for flagging a DNS server as down, is too low, and can trigger when local DNS servers are functioning properly.  This results in alerts and flagging DNS servers as down, until we detect a successful reply, from the affected DNS server.
