Well, thanks to Jean-Philippe Pick and Stefan Puiu, we can now
reproduce the bug :-)

If, on the master, you just change the TTL of a RRset, this change is
not reflected in the journal file (as displayed by journalprint) and
obviously not propagated to IXFR clients (AXFR clients - and regular
DNS clients like dig - see the new TTL).

Our master is 9.3.1.
