9.3.0 on FreeBSD 5.3

It compiles fine and runs fine...but I noticed an odd thing.

When the MASTER DNS server boots up, it fails to send notifies
to the SLAVES:

31-Dec-2004 06:51:33.207 zone domain.com/IN/external: notify to 
retries exceeded

(tons of them..each referring to each of my domains or zones)

None of the slaves ever see the NOTIFY.

..here is the odd part:

If I kill off named (after boot is all done)...then launch it again,
the SLAVES now receive the NOTIFYs.

So its *only* during the boot-up sequence that I am seeing this.

Bind 9.3.0 starts in the SAME way as the OEM version that comes with 
FREEBSD 5.3 with 2 exceptions.

1. I run it chrooted to /var/named
2. In rc.conf, I simply specify my new compiled binary
and launch it as such:

named_flags="-t /var/named -u named"

Anyone have ANY insight on this?
