You need to look for the crack into which something is falling ...
Here are my suggestions.
Look to your named.conf files, on master and new (new because of
changed address) slave(s), and track down the answers to the
To which addresses is the master sending NOTIFY?
From which addresses is each slave prepared to accept NOTIFY?
From which addresses is the master prepared to accept a transfer
(AXFR or IXFR shouldn't be an issue)?
Next, try matching log files between master and slave(s).
When you see a NOTIFY "received in the log file" (on the virtual
slave, I understand), does the slave send a transfer request?
Does the master log show the corresponding entries?
If it's still not clear, you'll likely need to see
what's happening on the wire (as opposed to in the logs).
Your friend is tcpdump.
Almost forgot ...
Are you using TSIG? If so, are there clock skew issues in your
virtual servers which don't arise on "bare metal"?
