If the serial numbers were out of sync you would see the old serial numbers
when you queried the secondaries.  I think the problem may simply be that
PSI simply hasn't installed the rslcom.co.uk zone on their secondary
servers.  Since the problem is with their servers, wouldn't it make sense
to check with them before asking for advice from the entire Internet?
