DNS security / primary names server down after large number of requests


i am running fedora core 2 with the most recent version of bind from that distro. i was troubleshooting a new firewall last night using ethereal. while i was working, my domain name server (testy.substantis.com) got hit with a huge number of requests. dnsreports shows that my primary is not answering. i have tried stopping and restarting and the service restarts without complaints. the mail server that uses this server is still up and the maillogs show that mail is being received and answered ok.

could i get some help in formulating a good search for help and the logs i would review to make an intelligent quess about what happened.
