This looks like a problem in your DNS setup rather than PostgreSQL - the 10 
minutes is a timeout. Possibly with reverse lookup. You may see similar 
problems with a mailserver if you are running one (and mailserver lists are a 
good place to search too).

You may want to investigate /etc/resolv.conf on both machines as well as the 
dig/host commands. Don't forget it could be a problem with server A lookup up 
server B or vice versa.
