It is to share the load on the DNS-DeleGate server, and you can
control the parallelism by DNSCONF=para:N parameter.  If you don't
need to make it work in parallel, specify like this:

 |If I stop the 1786 process, the 1808 remains.

How did you stopped the process?
If you terminated it by "kill SIGTERM" or "delegated -Fkill -P53",
all parallel processes must be terminated as a whole.
