A quick skim suggests that you aren't able to validate the root, but are 
able to validate DLV, which is why a subset of sites are working - those 
still with DLV entries.

If you can validate but not (who have now 
left DLV) then this might confirm it.

No idea why the root isn't valid for you, given you are running a recent 
bind - presumably the managed-keys config is messed up somehow.

Have you tried a clean install; blow away the entire /var/named and 
config hierarchy and start again?
