Zone transfer refused

We use Bind 8.2.2 pl5 on Solaris 2.6. We have it up and running some time now.

Since a few days/weeks it refuses zone transfers from our main domain. Zone 
transfers for other domains are not refused. For a transfer of our main 
domain I get a RCODE=REFUSED.

In my conf I do not use allow-transfer, so ALL transfers should be possible.

Plus I have this sendmail problem for some mailservers, related to the same 
problem I think.

Mar 28 08:54:35 sendmail[17789]: LAA05740: 
to=<yahoo at>, ctladdr=<nobody at willy> (60001/60001), delay=2+20:07:57, 
xdelay=00:00:10, mailer=esmtp, [], 
stat=Deferred: 453 4.4.3 Policy analysis reports temporary DNS error with 
your source domain.

Thusfar I haven't found any temporary DNS error.

Could someone suggest some tests, or has any ideas?
