[...]Secondly, is there anything Tor can do to improve the situation, like requesting a second lookup via another circuit if one reports a failure, or maybe not caching failures?
The most helpful thing from my point of view would be to try to figure out whether there's any pattern to the failures. Are some versions of Tor broken for DNS lookups? If so, that's the problem we should try to fix first. If you can identify any servers that fail on lookups particularly often, that would be a great place to start.
