I am experiencing this same issue with the Postgres back-end and the latest version of PDNS.

Going to try and downgrade in order to correct this problem.

  It seems from previous posts that I am not the only one who is getting a 0 reply when getting the serial so this perhaps is a bug that did appeared in 2.9.21?

    I've always used the feature of PowerDNS where it figures out its own serial of a zone based on the change_date column.

    My SOA record look like this: ns1.example.net hostmaster at example.net 0 10800 3600 604800 3600

    This worked fine for 2.9.20 and prior. But since 2.9.21 it replies with a serial of 0. I've tried several things but I was not able to get it working again.

    Quoting from the documentation:

    The fields have complicated and sometimes controversial meanings. The 'serial' field is special. If
    left at 0, the default, PDNS will perform an internal list of the domain to determine highest
    change_date field of all records within the zone, and use that as the zone serial number. This means
    that the serial number is always raised when changes are made to the zone, as long as the
    change_date field is being set.

    All records in my zone actually have a change_date (by default the unixdate of add or change of the record).

    The domains are all set to type MASTER.

    What can this be?
