With inline signing the signed and unsigned zones have separate serial
numbers, so this is normal. If I understand inline-signing correctly, when
you only modify the unsigned zone's serial number, that is not a big
enough change to require an update to the signed version of the zone.

You can use `rndc zonestatus` to see the server's view of both serial

You can use `rndc signing -serial` to set the serial number of the signed

You might want to set `serial-update-method` if you want something more
meaningful than an increment for each update (e.g. `date`).
