I would honestly look for a typo since you're saying that it does work
for some. Either way unless the admin turn it off you will get
zone-transfers, the question lies in wether your name-server accepts
them and propagates them down.

Check in the log for transfer or notification refusals and make sure
that you don't have any global variables that could cause issues.
