If the date or offset you specify via the -s option is outside the
period of activation of a key, then dnsssec-signzone won't use that key
to sign that RR.  So if you're trying to manage keys manually you will
need to resign the zone once the activation date plus 1 hour has passed
-- assuming you take the defaults for '-s' -- to pick up the RRSIGs made
with the new key.
