It is indeed. We generally do that when we get no response from the
primary DNS server. Have you checked whether your local DNS respondes
to NAPTR and SRV queries?
The DNS server has SRV records, which I have confirmed with 'dig' on Linux. But it doesn't have NAPTR records--unfortunately it is Windows Server 2003, which doesn't support NAPTR.
Could it be that Jitsi is using the backup resolver because of the lack of NAPTR? It would be good if it could still work with SRV records only, which I think is RFC 2543 compliant.

That's odd. Could you please send us pcap-s? You can mail them
firstname.lastname@example.org if you are worried about sending them publicly.
Sure, will do. I've got two files, one with Jitsi, another with X-Lite. Before each, I did 'ipconfig /flushdns'.
The Jitis logs would be also worth having a look at.
Attached. I've removed the pcap files, since they didn't contain any DNS stuff.
