There's no relationship between A records and AAAA records except for
being in the same rrset. It's also not meaningful to talk about a static
AAAA record in a dynamic zone. If an update fails then it's because the
prerequisites failed. BIND doesn't care about what you're adding as long
as you are allowed to add it and doesn't violate RFC rules. It WILL
reject changes that if you've told it that there are prerequisites to
the requests and those prerequisites are not being met. Turn on
debugging/tracing to figure out why.
