Are you saying that all your requestors each use their own
permanent TCP socket towards the name server providing recursive
lookup service?  Is there a particular reason that the resolver
clients can't use UDP instead?  If you did, I would think that the
FD_SETSIZE issue on the default named goes away.

This of course won't solve all the other more generic problems in
bind8 e.g. related to handling many outstanding queries, but that's
a different kettle of fish.
