Whatever action is specified in your security policy. You decided for
some reason to restrict zone transfers for some zones on your name
server. Presumably this was documented. So that document should
explain what to do whenever you find other IP addresses attempting
zone transfers for those zones. I would suggest that at the very least
you complain to the owners of these offending IP addresses and find
out why they're trying zone transfers for zones that you won't allow
them to transfer.
