There will be a 9.7.4 release fairly soon--the beta is in the pipeline
already.  9.8.1 will be in beta shortly as well.

Whether either of them includes a fix for this particular problem I can't say
for sure--you may have tripped over a bug that we already fixed, or maybe
not.  I would need to see the details of your configuration to say for
sure, which is why I asked for your conf file and the output of "named
-m record" if possible.

I can't really make recommendations.  (I, of course, think 9.7.4 and 9.8.1
will both be perfect snowflakes of bug-free wonderfulness, but you might
not want to trust the opinion of the author on this point. ;) )
