The setting behind:

My DNS server runs server software isc-bind with version 9.4.x (the most
recent version).

My dial up host runs bind v 9.2.3 and the nsupdate program coming with it.
When trying to use the 9.4.x (or 9.3.x) distribution and the nsupdate
program coming with it, I am experiencing the following problem for quite a
while now. When I try to update my zone entry

nsupdate -d -k $KEY
>server $SERVER
>zone $ZONE
>update add @ $TTL2 A $IPADDR

I allways get the error message

client xy.xy.xy.xy#8346: updating zone 'floppy.org/IN': update failed:
update RR is outside zone (NOTZONE)

Other update directives work fine, just this one doesn't, BUT !!!

The nsupdate version from the 9.2.3 distribution works perfectly fine, but
when trying to use the version from 9.4.x, I get the above error message.

Has anybody any clue as to why???

The zonefile on the 9.4.x bind server looks like this:

$TTL 36000      ; 10 hours

Any pointer would be appreciated. Basically I could live with v 9.2.3
running here, but you know...
