Okay, it's definitely fallen out of sync.

Not that I know of.

"rndc stop" would have the same effect as a kill, in this case... but
if you've consistently used "rndc reload" every time you updated the
zone file, then it should be working.  If you forgot even once, though,
then your server would get into this unrecoverable state.  So my guess
is, either that's what happened, or else there's some other bug that I
haven't previously encountered.  I should have time to take a closer
look at this next week.

Thank you, by the way, for testing the code.  If you'd like to get this
issue into our ticketing system, send mail to bind9-bugs at
