Actually, you're right.  The behavior that I'm noticing is that in BIND
9.2.1, even if the NS are defined by CNAME records, when the slave is
restarted it DOES connect to they master server and get the new zone.

However, in BIND 9.2.4rc6, the slave server does not do that when it is
restarted, when the NS is defined by CNAME records.

Anyhow, it doesn't matter... because with NS defined by A records, the
master does send out notifies, so we don't even need to restart the slave
server, since it gets the zone transfer when the master notifies.

Thanks everyone for your help,
