You are requiring a key for the transfer to occur.  You'll need to add the
-k option.  I haven't tried it, but here's the doc:

-k keydir:keyname
                             Sign the query with the TSIG key named keyname
                             that is in the directory keydir.

Sorry I forgot to mention that I am running ISC Bind9.2.1 in Win2K-Pro.

None of the commands seems to be providing any A records result.

should i have anything specific in my named.conf zone to allow that query?
here is part of my named.conf
zone "" {
        type master;
        file "";
        allow-update { key xxx.;};
        allow-transfer { key; };

Appreciate any help and all the responses
