I can always tell when the problem will occur based upon what

there is another delay as sendmail-clientmqueue loads. Once
that happens I know I'm in trouble thereafter.

You can see if this is a DNS issue by comparing the reactions:

ping hostname
ping hostname's-ip-address

In other words, if it's slow to look up a name, but quick when it doesn't have to, you've shown that it is a DNS problem.
