Put a check-names in the options section of your named.conf, eg

    check-names master warn;
    check-names master ignore;

but try warn first :-/  (there's also "check-names slave ..." for your
secondary servers)

However (single) hyphens are OK in domain names, it's more likely
underscores behind this.
