host name look up fail in sendmail

I set up sendmail. the mail can not be sent out.
when I check it using mailq command,
the following message displayed.

"Deferred: Name server: burro.baylor.edu: host name lookup fail"

I have configured etc/hosts and other network files. and I have runned
'named' deamon. ftp and telnet to the site out of my domain is OK.

Why?
