Refresh: is the time which a slave server keeps data before trying to refresh
Retry, if after refresh time it is not possible to refresh try every retry
If after retrying every retry seconds until expire it is not possible to
refresh, then zone is expired on expire time.
default ttl used to be the default ttl for any resource record, now it is the
default ttl for a negative cache, but the later is not honoured by older NS

=>also, i am running named on linux. how can i get a log of all hosts

Checl the logging section! You can log almost everything wherever you want.
You may use bind's own logging system or standard syslog.
