Initially I didn't have the directive in there at all and it was still 
doing this. I added it in to see if it would help resolve the problem. 
I've flipped it to no and resigned the zone... but it's still using the 
ZSK as a KSK. I also re-tried it without the directive at all, and it is 
still using the ZSK as a KSK.

re: secure-to-insecure: I'll be removing this statement once I get these 
keys working properly. At the moment, that's how I'm resigning the zone: 
delete the DNSKEY records via nsupdate and then re-add them.
