Hi Ton,

Thank you for responding. I've turned the loglevel to 9 (highest) and get the following output on the master:

ns1 pdns[16091]: AXFR of domain 'test-cict-1.nl' initiated by x.x.x.x

The output of the dig says:

dig @x.x.x.x test-cict-1.nl AXFR

; <<>> DiG 9.5.1-P3 <<>> @x.x.x.x test-cict-1.nl AXFR
; (1 server found)
;; global options:  printcmd
test-cict-1.nl.         3600    IN    SOA       ns1. postmaster.concepts.nl. 2010031511 28800 7200 604800 86400
;; communications error to end of file

It doesn't really tell me more.....

I don't use the fancy-records myself but my first step would be to turn
on debugging on the master and execute a manual dig @<master> <zone> AXFR

Digging in the source code for possible changes with regard to fancy
records and axfr might give you a clue whether anything has changed in pdns.

Good luck.
