I just ran into the very same issue. Only in our case the (super)masters
are BIND instead of Windows Server. Everything *seems* to be working
just fine, but that big nasty warning does make for a nasty gut feeling.
We haven't put this into production, yet. So it would be really nice if
someone from the PowerDNS team (or atleast someone who knows more about
that warning) could comment on this ;-)
