dhclient complains Can't update forward map no such RRset

Okay I am at a loss here and hope somebody can assist me with troubleshooting
my current configuration issues.  I read through the man pages for dhcp, bind,
dhclient, and relevant config files and I have not been able to find a cure to
my issue.

I have two servers:  the first is a server running dhclient/dhcpd that is
sending ddns updates to a primary name server.

dhclient is complaining:  "Mar 26 13:56:48 protect1 dhclient: Can't update
forward map protect1.domain.com. to no such RRset" 

I do not have a good understanding of what the above error message means
and/or how to cure it.  What on earth am I doing wrong?

# dhclient -v

here is my dhclient configuration

# cat /etc/dhclient-eth0.conf 
send host-name "machine.hostname.com.";
send fqdn.fqdn "machine.hostname.com.";
send fqdn.encoded on;
send fqdn.server-update off;

key machine.hostname.com {
    algorithm HMAC-MD5;
    secret "a;dflkja;sldkfja;lkdjq;wlekjr;qlkwejr;lqkwjer;lkqjewr";

zone hostname.com {
    key "machine.hostname.com";

interface "eth0" {
    send host-name "machine.hostname.com.";
    send dhcp-client-identifier 00:C0:F0:1F:21:E2;
    send dhcp-lease-time 3600;
    supersede domain-name "host.hostname.com hostname.com";
    prepend domain-name-servers;
    request subnet-mask, broadcast-address, time-offset, routers, domain-name,
name-servers, host-name;
    require subnet-mask, domain-name-servers;
    script "/sbin/dhclient-script";
