The generic MySQL backend in 3.0 does not support auto serial (as noted, admittedly not very obviously, at http://doc.powerdns.com/generic-mypgsql-backends.html). 3.1-pre (current SVN) adds this feature.

Note that auto serial is an expensive feature - it involves the equivalent of a zone transfer, internally.

Kind regards,
