What about  slave-cycle-interval ?

" Periodically, PDNS schedules checks to see if domains are still fresh.
The default slave-cycle-interval is 60 seconds, large installations may
need to raise this value. Once a domain has been checked, it will not be
checked before its SOA refresh timer has expired. Domains whose status is
unknown get checked every 60 seconds by default. "


Also, what about manual zone tranfers of your primary?  Could be that
something is happening in betweend the two servers.

Your 'anonymized' pdns.conf would help, too.
