Clarification about DNS notify

I have an issue which need some help.
I have two master DNS servers, say A & B.
A is running freebsd & B is running centos. B is running BIND 9 also.
Now, I want to add one more to this cluster say C.
I have installed centos in C with BIND 9. Now, I have copied
/etc/named.conf & /var/name from B to C. Now I restarted named in C.
Now, I have a question which may be quite simple, but I couldn't find
an answer even after lot of googling. So, I would be extremely
grateful for any advice you could offer.
When I restarted named in C, I could see that C is sending DNS
notifications and B is receiving it
from /var/log/messages in C:
"Sep 9 23:53:44 serverC named: zone example.com/IN: sending
notifies (serial 20050 30401)"
from /var/log/messages in B:
Sep 9 23:53:44 serverB named: client XX.XX.XX.XX#54546:
received notify for zone 'example.com'
I checked /etc/named.conf and I couldn't see any particular reason
for C choosing to notify B.
Any explanation to this behavior or a link to any relevant guide will
