Delay connecting to dual homed host

Whenever my FreeBSD-5.2.1 gateway looses its connection to
the ISP it takes much longer to establish an ssh session to
it from the LAN side.

I can live with the delay (not sure I can live with the ISP)
but I wonder what's happening.

Also sendmail fails to accept and queue email from clients
and browsers can't convert addresses even though Bind is
running as a caching only name server.

(I have a fixed IP so there's no DHCP involved.)

(Puzzled) John.
