why do you have such a high numer of queries resolver -> nameserver?

once a resolver fetched a label it should be cached at the resolver.
and would not benefit from any keepalive.

other options:
- the ttl of labels served by the nameserver is very short and that  
result in fast
   cache expire and need to ask the nameserver again and again

- the resolver get many queries for differenet nonexisting label
