Here is the config... Any suggestions?

options {
        version "The best version... What do you expect.";
        directory "/var/named";
        pid-file "/var/named/";
        recursion no;
        allow-query { any; };
        allow-transfer { "secdns";};
        // These people are banned from everything
        blackhole { none; };
        provide-ixfr yes;
        request-ixfr yes;
        transfers-per-ns 1000;
        transfers-out 2000;
