Are you possibly using a slightly older version? This  was fixed in http://wiki.powerdns.com/trac/changeset/1234 - released in 2.9.22.

Subject: [Pdns-users] zone2sql with bind

Hi there
I’m trying to use zone2sql to migrate DNS from a bind box to a new PowerDNS box. I have a problem where the bind zone file contains a . in the $ORIGIN. For example:


Zone2sql writes the insert as:
Insert into domains (name,type) values (‘example.com’,’NATIVE’);
Insert into records (domain_id,name,type,content,ttl,prio) select id ,’example.com’ ,  ‘NS’ , ‘ns0.example.com’, 345600, 0 from domains where name = ‘example.com.’)

This breaks the insert of the record as no domain exists with the name = ‘example.com.’ only ‘example.com’

Any ideas why? Or any workaround?
