Just one at a time, seemingly randomly.  A host here, a service there,
several times a day.  They always almost immediately recover, but I
don't understand why my centralized collector seems to have this issue.

Nagios runs as the nagios user, which can read the resource.cfg file

ls -ld . ; ls -l nagios-hostname.cfg resource.cfg
drwxrwx--- 6 root nagios 4096 Aug 27 16:02 .
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   47606 Jul  1 11:18 nagios-hostname.cfg
-rw-r----- 1 root nagios  2400 Mar 19 11:25 resource.cfg
