[By way of putting this to bed, at last ...]
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')
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.
