There's your problem, the SOA is not increased for signed zones. Please
the documentation on SOA-EDIT[1] and DNSSEC. If you don't set the
SOA-EDIT metadata for this one zone, you can use the
default-soa-edit-signed setting[2] to automatically increase SOA serials
for all signed zones.

Hope this helps!
