although havok is right technically, in practice, end-users almost never need to do tcp/dns, since it is only for zone transfers or packets too large to fit into a datagram (highly unusual.)

Really not that unusual these days, particularly with SPF and DKIM.

Edit: And, in this case, the OP is running their own domain's DNS server.

If you're planning on PMing me to ask me to look at a thread, or for individual support, don't.
