But where are you using just the zen list? If it's at your MTA, well  
that's fine and will have taken some load off MS but SA does many,  
many (I haven't been excited enough to count them all!) RBL, SURBL etc  
look ups by default along with razor & pyzor tests. Any one of these  
could be slow or just you have a slow DNS server. As was once said,  
any caching DNS server running on a SpamAssassin box is a busy caching  
server. Check the wiki (As mentioned already) for other ideas and run  
a few batches in debug to see where the delay is but to be honest 30  
seconds really is not too bad, I can not believe any one notices  
anything other than a reduced level of spam?
