Thank you. I've seen these threads. But for now, I am just trying to make this 
AXFR query work.

Thanks for the reminder.

In fact, I have the problem on several pdns servers ; I have 2 of them for my 
private network running on Debian Lenny boxes (with native LDAP replication), 
and I just installed a new Squeeze box in a kvm in order to prepare and 
validate some network and DNS reconfiguration I am planning.

But I'll try to set up another brand new kvm with a simpler configuration (the 
LDAP tree on my test machine is a partial (push) replication of another ldap 
tree living on another test machine), and see if the problem appears again.
