Ok, i cut-n-paste this into "manet.nu", controlled by
bind-9.3.0 :

0baa18a5-e2aa-4a72-8aa9-736aeae14ba2.manet.nu. IN CNAME nwmigrate.kentlaw.edu.

reload is without trouble :
Oct 26 08:21:28 n named[69533]: general: loading configuration from '/named.conf'
Oct 26 08:21:28 n named[69533]: general: zone manet.nu/IN: loaded serial 2004102603

So either you have an additional error present in the windowsport of
bind or your zonefile contains hidden characters.
