Note that if dnscache and tinydns are on the same machine, then
dnscache's queries to tinydns will probably be coming from,
so you should also have:

$ env DNSCACHEIP= dnsqr a www.arix.com

dnscache is trying to talk to a.ns.arix.com and b.ns.arix.com, both at, the external address of your DSL modem.  Apparently,
your IP setup won't handle internal machines talking to your own
external address.  You can deal with that by adding an override to
dnscache's root/servers/ configuration:
You'd use arix.com instead of "internal", and the internal address of
your tinydns.
