I installed BIND 9.4,1-P1 on my hidden master DNS server, replacing
BIND 9.3.4.  There were a number of messages like this one:

     Jul 26 09:10:07  ... named[29566]: [ID 873579 daemon.error]
       '' has no address records (A or AAAA)

I do not understand this message.  There is an A record for -

Is the problem the fact that the "A" record does not appear in the

zone but appears in the

zone?  There were messages for all of the entries in the zone
that have internal MX records pointing to

There were a number of similar messages that denoted dangling
MX records pointing to mail hosts that no longer exist; I corrected
those.  I just do not understand the above message about atalanta.
