Zone Transfer issue on BIND9

You're putting the allow transfer on each zone?   I don't think that's your issue but it seems odd to me.  Here we do it at the view level.

Also it appears you're using the same IP for at least two of your views - for view transfers to work properly here we setup virtual IPs on the DNS servers and set the ACLs appropriately.
i.e. our "real" IPs are in the ACL we used prior to setting up views and are now only used for the main [external] view and we have different ACLs for the virtual IPs used within the internal view.

You haven't said *how* it isn't working. Be specific.

Note that the FAQ link you reference puts the "server {}" block INSIDE the view. You have it in the global config. That seems like something to investigate.
