You just answered your own question.

One can FTP to several AS/400s with no 30 sec delay.
None of these AS/400 know anything about my PC.
I'm connecting over the internet and my IP address
changes every time.

The other is only connected (through a local 3COM router) 
to one AS/400 and has the 30 sec delay.

That is the difference, the routes.  You local PC goes out one router,
probably the default, fails after 30 seconds, takes the alternate route and

Nothing to do with DNS.
