Thank you for your quick answer.

Yes, I do. 

	zone loaded serial 1121661332

	zone loaded serial 1121661332

Here might be an error.     86400   IN      SOA 1121631141
14400 1800 3600000 7200

The serialnumber in the SOA record is lower than the serial number BIND
pretends to load in the logs. But why would BIND log to load the right
zone, but use an old one?
