You also seem to be using a version of BIND earlier than 8.2.3,
which has known security issues, when 9.2 is recommended.

How do you select your serial numbers? As I think this is the
root of your problems with zone transfers.

I strongly recommend YYYYMMDDVV. i.e. 2002020901 for first
change today.

Perhaps you are trying to use a longer number and it is being
mangled by serial number arithmetic?
