This often happens when you have increased your Serial on a master and the 
slaves still have not requested the update, but you say you have notify 
enabled, I would ask if your slaves are in the NS for your zones? Is your 
master really notifying your slaves? Are the slaves requesting properly an 
AXFR or IXFR from the master once they receive the notify. I guess it is 
taking long time to check for changes or the slaves are not receiving the 
notify either.
