> When I update the SOA record of the master zone file, if I reload the zone with "rndc reload", the SOA record is updated. If I perform a stop/start of the named executable, the SOA change is not updated.

Ralph: There was a lot of discussion about this issue on the bind forum around the first of the year. My recollection is that with inline-signing enabled, stopping named, editing the zone file, and restarting named isn't a supported method of updating zone data. I am aware of two supported options: 1) as you did above, edit the zone file and run 'rndc reload', 2) use 'nsupdate'. Others will probably recall this in more detail and more accurately.
