Hi

I have a weird issue .. which I just saw when I added an IP to my zone
for hserus.net (tinydns pri NS on frodo.hserus.net served by two bind
secondaries)

Updating the serial number on djbdns, loading the zone serves it ok.

I then used the dnsnotify perl script available on the djbdns.org site
to send a NOTIFY to my two bind secondaries ns{3,4).zoneedit.com (which
are probably bind 9 now, though digging for version.bind from their
chaos.txt just doesnt work)

frodo# dnsnotify hserus.net ns3.zoneedit.com ns4.zoneedit.com
Received NOTIFY answer from 66.180.174.61
Received NOTIFY answer from 216.98.150.236

However - the secondaries are not updating themselves .. possibly
because bind9 sends IXFR requests rather than AXFR first .. and djbdns
doesn't do IXFR, just AXFR. So, when an IXFR doesnt return anything,
does bind fall back to doing an AXFR to update itself from the
primary?
