When you update a zone, the new version of the zone has to be internally
consistent.  There was a bug where the consistency check was being applied
against the old version of the zone before the change, not the new version
of the zone resulting from the change, and consequently some valid updates
were rejected.  This was fixed in 9.7.3b1.

The relevant routine is "zone_check_ns()" in zone.c.
