Possible fix for DNS isses in Snow Leopard

I recently switched to a Mac running 10.6.latest as my primary machine and ran into this exact problem. I have a LAN-based DNS server to provide addresses for the other machines on the internal network and two DNS servers provided by my ISP. Intermittently, Firefox would fail to resolve the name of an internal server.
After some searching, I found this page that suggests Apple changed the way DNS servers are queried in Snow Leopard (item #2): Apple - Support - Discussions - Changes in DNS resolution in Mac OS X ...
I found this article and made the suggested changes: OS X 10.6.3 and DNS server priority changes | MacFixIt - CNET Reviews
I hope this helps someone else get Snow Leopard to honor DNS server ordering instead of randomizing them.

I had the same problem this morning and killing the mDNSResponders fixed it. Thanks for the tip!
