Firstly stop using BIND 9.3. It's no longer supported and has
unfixed security bugs.
Secondly the problem is not reproducable based on you description
with BIND 9.3.6-P2 and I can't remember a fix for as problem like
this so you have most probably mis-diagnosed the problem. Perhaps
you could post a actual problem file.
