Their are literally hundreds of lines similar to these in the /var/log/message log. What does it mean? Good? Bad?

Wait, are these the logs from running the rndc querylog command?

You can close this, I am pretty sure nothing is fishy about those log lines after doing a bit of research myself. Went into panic mode when I seen my log almost completely filled with them though.
