The number of message is 106007.

Explanation : This is a connection-related message. This message is displayed if a UDP packet containing a DNS query or response is denied.

Recommended Action : If the inside port number is 53, the inside host probably is set up as a caching name server. Add an access-list command statement to permit traffic on UDP port 53, and a translation entry for the inside host. If the outside port number is 53, a DNS server was probably too slow to respond, and the query was answered by another server.

I hope this helps.

Best regards.

I'm working on the same issue and what I get it that one DNS server has responded and the firewall DNS inspection engine realizes this so it doesn't respond to the DNS query. I don't think its a harmful log message but I'm looking into it further on my end.

Yes this message is normal if you have two servers configured for DHCP relay in the firewall. The first DNS response is allowed through but the second is blocked (and rightly so).
