DNS traffic is being shifted towards TCP to avoid fragmentation

Especially DNSSEC employs big payloads.  The original EDNS buffer size
of 4096 isn't recommended anymore, modern clients advertise 1232 bytes
instead (the glibc stub resolver uses the even more conservative 1200
bytes), and servers similarly truncate their responses to avoid having
them fragmented.  This initiates TCP fallback, which, if not allowed,
leads to "DANE error: tlsa lookup DEFER" failure messages from the
Exim remote_smtp transport (after a long connect timeout).
