What does this mean ? INSIST(zone->type == dns_zone_stub) failed

I use a modified version of BIND9.7.1-p2.I installed it on two
machines(MachineA and MachineB). They both host the same zone in master
And in the modified code , one machine would refresh (using
dns_zone_refresh) its zone data from the other in order to get the same
This time , MachineA has a serial number 85 for the zone and MachineB
has a serial number of 83. MachineA is running .
When I start MachineB , it calls dns_zone_refresh and later runs into
the callback function "refresh_callback". In that function , it runs
into the lines which start from the label "tcp_transfer:" , which
requires the zone type to be dns_zone_slave or dns_zone_stub , but this
time the zone type is dns_zone_master , so assert error. It runs into
the "tcp_transfer:" code because of a lower serial number (83 vs
85,that's another problem for myself).
Above is the cause of the crash. It seems nothing to do with the
original BIND code.But I have some questions.Should I do a transfer of a
zone between two servers which both host that zone as MASTER type? And
, if they have the same serial number , then the call of
dns_zone_refresh has no effect , right?Then , it means I misused
dns_zone_transfer , is that right ?
