Ok, thanks. And the clients querying my nameserver for . NS are not
mine, they come from
208.78.169.* and 204.11.51.*

Examples from syslog before I changed my configuration:

Jun 22 04:42:07 rdb named[4431]: client query
(cache) './NS/IN' denied
Jun 22 04:46:17 rdb named[4431]: client query
(cache) './NS/IN' denied
