Zone not transferring???

We are stumped.
My friend Bud does the secondary service for several of my domains. One of them has stopped transferring. Bud deleted the db file
and I incremented the serial number and we both restarted named but the db file was not recreated.
I found the following in my log file:
01-Oct-2001 14:26:32.000 notify: info: Sent NOTIFY for "gwsystems.co.il IN SOA 2001100101" (gwsystems.co.il); 1 NS, 1 A
01-Oct-2001 14:26:33.000 notify: info: Received NOTIFY answer (AA) from 184.108.40.206 for "gwsystems.co.il IN SOA"
Bud found this in his log file:
01-Oct-2001 14:26:31.000 rcvd NOTIFY(gwsystems.co.il, IN, SOA) from
01-Oct-2001 14:26:31.000 NOTIFY(SOA) for zone already xferring
But the zone never transfers.
I have opened my firewall to allow all packets from Bud's machine to mine and the reverse but that didn't help. And, as I said, the
other zones are fine, it's just this one that has a problem.
So, what is the problem or what should we check.
I have run DNS Expert(eval version) on it and the only things it complains of is the lack of a couple of PTR records in the reverse.
