Thanks to everyone who replied. I've learned quite a bit about Bind
during the conversation.

I finally just re-created the zone with all its static entries and
will force DHCP renewals all around
to update the rest of the clients.

The problem stemmed from no backup and no slave zones. Both will be
implemented to avoid
(hopefully) a repeat of this problem.

Kind Regards,
