I know that certain large DNS providers (i.e. google and level3) have either been banned or have voluntarily blocked spamhaus queries by their resolvers. We're currently in discussion with spamhaus and I wanted to see how others may have handled this.

I believe you can pay them a small fee and do a zone transfer so you are not hitting their name servers.

If you see value in the service, it should be worth the small fee.  And since you are hitting them a lot, I have a feeling that you see value in the service.
