Hello Sumit,

This prevents any outside host from requesting an AXFR. However, PowerDNS can still request one internally, and this happens if you don’t provide a valid SOA. PowerDNS will then try to determine a SOA from the timestamps on all the records.

To avoid this, please provide a valid SOA when asked!
