That API endpoint is certainly correct and should work. Do you only have that problem with a particular zone or with all zones? Is the zone very large by chance?

The best way to start debugging this, is first to check if pdns itself can access the zone and the zone looks “sane” (do a pdnsutil list-zone domain.tld, and a pdnsutil check-zone domain.tld). If that looks fine, then I would enable / increase logging of the API component and see if the logs tell you something more.
