Debugging Notify & Xfer

For some reason I'm suddenly having a problem with notifies/transfers not
working.  Here are the log entries on the slave:

Jan  5 15:23:54.272 notify: info: received notify for zone ''

Jan  5 15:23:55.490 xfer-in: debug 3: transfer of '' from connected

Jan  5 15:23:55.506 xfer-in: debug 3: transfer of '' from requesting IXFR for serial 2003101701

Jan  5 16:23:54.365 xfer-in: error: transfer of '' from giving up: timed out

Both servers are runnnig BIND 9.2.3, with no firewall between them.  I have a
third, offsite server that also gets sent notifies and also isn't updating.

What should I do next to debug the problem?
