problem with domain and sub-domain configuration

Hello I have one domain with namserver (

and a subdomain with nameserver (

my problem is that if I update hostnames inside zone
updates are not seen by nameserver

they are seen if I restart named on

actually on I have the following directive

zone "" IN {
        type forward;
        forward only;
        forwarders {; };

but when I update the father zone for example I add an ip address,
the update is not seen by nameserver and I have to restart 
named and after that
it works. So that clients using nameserver cannot see 
updates to domain ip addresses.

I do not know how to fix this problem unless I configure to 
be slave of
but i did not want to do so.

any hints ?

thank you
