You've possibly checked all this, but let me ask anyway:
1. Are you monitoring named logs when reload the zones? Any errors?
2. Have you run your generated zonefiles through `named-checkzone'?
Errors? Warnings? (e.g. an underscore in a name?)
3. You say named is realoding the file with its correct SOA serial
number. Have you verified by querying named?
dig @127.0.0.1 <zone> SOA
4. Is the CNAME at the zone apex? (i.e. #2 will have found this)
