Received notify, master unreachable (cached)

I have the following problem:

1. Slave is trying to contact master for the first time but master in

zone ./IN: refresh: retry limit for master exceeded

2. Master starts up (also for the first time) and gets information
about slave in the NS record update
3. Master sends a notification to slave
4. Slave refuses to transfer the zone:

client received notify for zone '.'
zone ./IN: refresh: skipping zone transfer as master
(source is unreachable (cached)

This doesn't seem right. If slave receives the notification from
master it should know that master is reachable. Is this a bug or a
configuration problem? Please help. Thank you.
