[public-dns-discuss] Empty answers for A-queries of ukit.com

We have a three nameservers ns1.ukit.com ns2.ukit.com and ns3.ukit.com. 
The software is PowerDNS 4.1.5 packed into docker containers, the network ports are exposed via docker-proxy (not "--net=host").
The backend for the PowerDNS is "remote", and it interacts with our self-made restful service which serves records from MongoDB.

The problem is that Google's public DNS sometimes returns our SOA record for the queries of A-records, like there is no A-record at all. In result our websites are becoming inaccessible at random time from random locations across the world, according to reports from host-tracker.com (a geo-spread monitoring service) our users also have reported us about theese problems with availability of their sites. We also could get these empty anwers ourselves quering and (approximately 1 from 10 attempts), while other public DNS services seemed not to encountered the same, we tried and

The questions are:

- Why Google's public DNS does so?
- Are there any special requirements for authoritative DNS-servers to be operable normally via Google's public DNS? E.g. response time, answers format etc.
- Is there a way to check compatibility with Google's public DNS ourselves, apart from listed here https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/troubleshooting?
