No. I'm not using Internet Sharing but thanks for responding.
My understanding to date is that this may be a Bonjour message.
I have a fairly simple wireless set-up. One wireless router with an HP Network Printer attached.
Two physical machines connect: iMac & iBook.
And one virtual - VMware Fusion Windows XP Home Edition.
Maybe it's the printer or VMWare causing the problem.
Do you have either of those components in your system?
Bonjour is itself a DNS (technically, a component of DNS Service Discovery that uses multicast DNS) though it is not user-configurable in the sense that, say, BIND is.
The error message Bonjour is receiving is "DNS message too short." While I understand this may have little to do with a queryable DNS like BIND (though Bonjour is in fact a queryable DNS in an entirely different sense), Bonjour has everything to do with DNS.
That said, I will be the first to admit that my ignorance on this topic is vast.

<shrug> It's harmless... that's what logs are for... I'm surprised you think it bothers you.
Of course the correct answer is to figure out what other machine is sending the bum zeroconf messages.
