What is the role of a DNS server?
I had the same error on a Windows 2000 server box at 5-minute intervals. I figured out that the problem was caused by a netmon client trying to query DNS every 5 minutes.
A Win2000 Server running the DNS Server generates this message after a TCP connection on the DNS port terminates unexpectedly. Usually it can be ignored, since it should not mean that your server has any kind of problem.
