	Updating the Perl module Net::DNS to a recent version seems to be 
	what is needed to make the test which was failing (labelled 'xfer') 
	run successfully.

	I don't know the cut-off point between 'old' and 'recent' version
	of Net::DNS.  I've had success with 0.65 and 0.66; current is 0.72.
	An 'old' version will cause the 'xfer' test to fail in BIND releases
	subsequent to 9.8.1-P1, including current releases.

	Best regards,
