I am using the released version from ISC. 
I always update the serial number of the unsigned zone (as I show in the original message).
Is there something else that I may be doing wrong?

The reason this is important to me is that the application that we use for IPAM/DNS/DHCP utilizes BIND and performs a stop/start to load new versions of the zones.

Thank you,
