Unexpected RCODE message
Dear All,
Hope everyone is fine.

Aug 22 11:14:13 dhaka named[1777]: unexpected RCODE (SERVFAIL) resolving '':

I've got the above error in my server today in tail -f /var/log/message.
Is it serious problem? Can anyone have idea?

Thanks in advance..

It's not serious. It's just an info message.
It means that your server was asked to resolve the domain and failed, because there was a problem with the authoritative dns which is In fact I've tried it here and got the same error in my logs, because the server was unreachable.
