Thanks for this tip. Looking into it I discovered TCP seems to be recommened for DNSSEC so Ive enabled TCP port 53  and so far not had a problem!

AFAIK TCP is just a fall-back transport to work around UDP packet size issues. Compared to UDP, TCP transport for DNS wastes system and network resources.
