Have you deployed ZooKeeper on servers other than the Solr nodes?
If you have them on the Solr nodes, then you may be getting elections when under pressure.

I don't have anything specific for you, but if you are having any kind of performance issues
at all, it can lead to bizarre SolrCloud behavior.

The basic zookeeper client timeout defaults to 15 seconds.  This is a very long timeout, but
if anything is happening that makes any part of SolrCloud wait longer than 15 seconds, SolrCloud
will think there's a problem that needs recovery.

Here's a summary of common performance problems and some possible solutions:
