@Made_in_Germany -

Quick proof/disproof of your 'dns is not the problem' is to hard code with ip addresses, bypassing dns. If the problem persists it falls into the TCP traffic routing problems realm.

IMO you have to eliminate flaky DNS first.

This kind of problem is painful in person, almost intractable by remote control.

thanks all. the problem is solved. turns out its doing a reverse DNS lookup using the nameserver in resolv.conf. have to add an entry on local hosts file to prevent it using the nameserver.
