Hi Mollatt,

This usually means what it says: there's an error with the TSIG
authentication between master and slave.  Make sure you've got your
allow-transfer statements configured with the proper keys, that you've got
server {} blocks configured with the proper keys, and that a copy of the
slave key lives on the master.

If you're not intending to use TSIG, make sure your master doesn't require
it and that your slave doesn't try to use it for its AXFRs.
