Post the contents of the zone. However it is possible that 9.3.0 broke
something in the hesiod space. There aren't many servers out there
these days serving hesiod zones so it wouldn't have gotten the kind of
testing that internet zones get.

You could try 9.2.4. Try running the slave version of the zone through
BIND 9.3.0 named-checkzone and see if it has any errors.

The ticket to Rio may be a good bet.
