In this regard, "primary nameserver" is the nameserver mentioned
in the SOA of the zone. So it's not necessarily the first NS-record
in the zone; it doesn't even need to be part of the NS-Set at all.

@bert hubert: If the log-message Enrico gave in his original message
is what is logged in this case, developer should think about improving
the information content of the log-message to prevent error-seeking 
in wrong places ;)
