If you need IXFR today go get BIND 8.2.3 t1a 

What is in BIND 8.2.2 P5 had enough bugs that I rewrote the code.
Both Client and Server side IXFR in 8.2.2 P5 have bugs.
Client side of IXFR is the code in named-xfer and Server side is what is in 
IXFR will be in both BIND 8.2.3 and BIND 9 and in their respective test
