A zone transfer is transferring the contents of the zone, the zone in
question is 'iiasa.ac.at', but you've also created a subzone
'test44.iiasa.ac.at' which is a completely separate point of
administration that just happens to hide records inside of the parent
zone. So on your slaves you will also need to slave the subzone if you
want it to override the records there.

A query will traverse the tree until it finds the lowest point of
delegation with which to obtain a response from.
