There is nothing to resolve.
Please read the FAQ that ships with BIND 9 before posting.

Q: I keep getting log messages like the following.  Why?

   Dec  4 23:47:59 client updating zone 'example.com/IN':
   update failed: 'RRset exists (value dependent)' prerequisite not
   satisfied (NXRRSET)

A: DNS updates allow the update request to test to see if certain
conditions are met prior to proceeding with the update.  The message
above is saying that conditions were not met and the update is not
proceeding.  See doc/rfc/rfc2136.txt for more details on prerequisites.
