I did your suggested test.
First dig debian.net returned 736 ms.
Second and several more all returned 1 ms.
Then I restart bind9: # /etc/init.d/bind9 restart
and the first dig debian.net again gives many hundreds of millisec.

A very clean demonstration that bind9 running on my computer contains a
cache, and uses it.

Thanks. I have learned a lot.
