[Pdns-users] Problem with notifies for a domain - the server that sends notification sometimes is and sometimes is not a master.

Nope, the serials are the same. I've double checked that - zones are
in sync. And if something changes the master has a higher serial.

SOA records are ok IMO (domain is example.com, dns is on a different
domain - but that's nothing fancy):

@       10800   SOA     ns.example.net. dns.example.net. 2008010108 172800 43200
3600000 86400

The serial is not YYYYMMDDNN, but it gets increased with every change.

I'll rephrase myself - sometimes the notify is accepted (and produces
a message that both zones are in sync, which is ok) and some other
times it gets rejected for no apparent reason.

Is there anything I could do to clear things up?
