We've just upgraded from Bind 8.4.4 to Bind 9.3.3 and we are having  
some problems with zone transfer from

Here is the message we see in the logs:

> Feb  1 15:12:07 named[29154]: [ID 873579  
>] zone refresh: unexpected  
> rcode (NXDOMAIN) from master (source

I've not ever seen the '(source' portion of this entry  
before and I wonder if that might be a clue.

Here is the relevant part of named.conf:

> zone "" {
>         type slave;
>         masters {
>   ;    #
>   ;       #
>         };
>         file "";
> };

Things were working fine with the old version. Apart from adding in  
the include statement for the rndc.key file and the controls for  
rndc, the configuration file is identical to that which works with  

Thoughts? If there is more information that would help I will be  
happy to provide it.
