    'rndc reload' is enough to make the zones being re-read and 
new/updated records available.

    Problably you're missing:

1) to increment the zone serial ... if you dont do that, bind wont know 
you updated the zone. That's important, ALWAYS update the serial when 
changing/adding records;

2) your DNS server itself is using another DNS server which is caching 
the records, so cache needs to expire so new/updated records can be 
seen. You can have your DNS server using itself ( as DNS 
server, that should solve if this is the problem;
