Agreed.  I really appreciate the effort ISC has put into the KB.

Not sure if you've already tried, but do you have xfer logging enabled?

logging {


	channel audit_log {
		file "/var/named/bind/named.log";
		severity debug;
		print-time yes;


	category xfer-in { audit_log; };
	category xfer-out { audit_log; };
	category notify { audit_log; };
	category network { audit_log; };
	category update { audit_log; };
	// might want this to debug...
	//category queries { audit_log; };
