Sounds like your not cacheing right.

check out http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/DNS-HOWTO.html for some info on that, 
particularly the caching info.  It sounds like you are using your ISP's DNS 
servers, on your linux server, and your clients aren't able to, because they 
can't resolve ns1.isp.net to the ip of it.
