If you are using `auto-dnssec` then named is internally using dynamic
updates, and you can't control the serial number other than telling named
how to update it.

If you are using `dnssec-signzone` in a cron job then there shouldn't be a
problem controlling the serial number.

Fisher: East or southeast 3 or 4. Slight, occasionally moderate at first.
Showers. Good.
