Both zones are being backed by the same file, so one will be overwriting
the other.  This may not be the cause of the half-working situation, but
it won't be helping.  Do the bind logs (not sure where Fedora puts them
though - /var/log/messages?) contain any errors?

Unless <domain> is really '', I would suggest naming your
file after the zone that it is going to contain - e.g.

file "data/db._msdcs.<domain>";
file  "data/db.<domain>";
