         I assume that dns1 is the master and dns2 is the slave.

That won't do anything except generate load errors.  Are there any tmp files
left in the /etc directory of the slave (or whereever you put your config files)?
If so, what's in them? You appear to have a very small zone, so it's probably
not a memory issue. To be sure try increasing your pagefile size on the master
and rebooting. Are you sure that there's absolutely nothing in either the master
nor the server?  Did you set up a log file (done in named.conf)? If so, what's in
there, both for the master AND the slave.
