Too many DNS requests. How to make it lower ?

I host my DNS with , I noticed that I have daily more than 350.000 DNS requests for main domain, This domains got about 80.000 uniqes/day, so this is strange how can there be 350.000 DNS requests/day. Seems that I'll go over the quota because of this.
The TTL for all domains is set to 86400.
Is there a way to discover how its possible ? And also is there a way to do something to make this number lower (DNS requests)

Open a ticket with DNS Made Easy and ask them to provide you the logs of one of their locations. This will represent about 5% of your traffic but it will be a pretty good tool.
80,000 visitors per day is not that small of a site. That's 2.4 million visitors per month.
With the web crawlers for the search engines and the spammers sending you spam you can easily get a query total that you are seeing with your high volume domain.
