Well, for curiosity's sake, here's the log information.  The first 4 messages occur when transferring a zone with no NS records.  The last 2 messages occur when restarting the server.  Names and IPs have been changed to protect the guilty.

Hey no worries man.  I got a little miffed that you put your guess that the problem wasn't that the master didn't have NS records against my personal observation, but hey, I can't blame ya.  People asking questions make wrong assumptions about what the problem is all the time.  Many times I've helped people and said bluntly "I don't believe you, paste for me the results for *this* and *that* command".  :)
