Secondary DNS Issues

I'm trying to use to use as secondary DNS servers. I have
setup the following zone from my primary NS:


zone "" {
        type master;
        file "/etc/bind/zones/";
        allow-transfer {

where the two IP addresses are those given by for secondary

The only error I"m seeing in syslog is:

Dec 22 09:44:38 jupiter named[5209]: client zone
transfer '' denied

Configuration on XName seem pretty straight forward. I set the
following form fields:

Primary Nameserver IP:
Allow Transfers From: Master Only

Not sure what else to look for. It seems to me that I have the master
setup correctly, but I'm willing to bet I've forgotten something that
is probably obvious.
