I'm pretty sure it's not a bind problem (I'm not pretending it's a bind 
bug), but I need help to spot the problem, because from bind logs it is 
not clear to me what the problem is. Network connectivity between ns1 
and ns2 is obviously 100% reliable, it's the same host, and other zones 
do update correctly, so what does zone has that blocks

I got it, thanks, and I also already have another server at another 
provider in a different country I can use for the job. However, for the 
time being, I'm more interested in understanding what's going on than in 
adding random variables to the system, such as possibly unreliable 
internet connection.
