Oracle Names question

We still have a few 8i databases and we use ONames resolution.

We've noticed that over the last couple of months, when we take the nameserver's database down for a backup, the nameserver process doesn't go down. Something is still using it. We haven't quite determined what's happening, but I'm wondering if it's something we need to worry about.

Since the database goes down, the database is backed up just fine. I'm not too familiar with ONames, though, so I'm not sure if the nameserver process not going down and getting restarted will cause our database backups to not be any good.

Any comments?
