Problem to add new domains!

We use bind 8.2.5 on solaris!

When we add new domains in our primary (master) DNS, this DNS sends a 
notify to our secondary (slave) DNS. This is all right!
When the secondary (slave) DNS receives this "notify", it answers "name not 
one in our zones". It answers it even if we already
have autority of these domains.

Here an example of the log in our master DNS:

Feb 18 09:19:14 masterdns named[21219]: Sent NOTIFY for
" IN SOA 2002021801" (; 2 NS, 2 A

Here the log in our slave DNS:

rcvd NOTIFY(, IN, SOA) from [masterdns].56516
Feb 18 09:19:03 slavedns named[1797]: [ID 295310] rcvd NOTIFY
for "", name not one of our zones

Here the entry in our named.conf about this domain:

zone "" {
         type master;
         file "cpie1/";

Why the slave always answer this error name instead of adding this newly entry?

I would appreciate any hints!
Thank you very much in advance!
