Does anyone know why gethostbyname could return too much WSANO_DATA errors? five times out of ten it happens.

WSANO_DATA
11004
Valid name, no data record of requested type.
The requested name is valid and was found in the database, but it does not have the correct associated data being resolved for. The usual example for this is a host name-to-address translation attempt (using gethostbyname or WSAAsyncGetHostByName) which uses the DNS (Domain Name Server). An MX record is returned but no A record?indicating the host itself exists, but is not directly reachable.

unreliable DNS servers maybe?
i remember when I had a poor (but free :) ) dial-up service, I would also very frequently get DNS errors

I don't think it's because of bad DNS. Works fine in other software (not mine) using same dns.
