When you do, you do get this:

 "Added retrieval request for '"+domain+"' from master "+di.master;

from pdns_control, even when nothing happens?

Can you time? Is it *Exactly* one minute later?

Have you configured slave-cycle-interval perhaps?

I don't think so, but it might be. What happens is that an AXFR is only
queued by pdns_control. Then there is a loop that checks if there is
something that needs to be AXFRd. This loop might not be running, or running

That in turn might be caused by database problems. Which backend do you use?
