I think you've spotted the problem. I was running:

$ pdnsutil add-zone-key parsemail.org zsk 1024 active rsasha1

Which was creating a new ZSK with an algorithm of 5, when the old KSK
and ZSK were both algorithm 7 in the db.

When I append "-nsec3-sha1" to the algorithm arg, it started working

$ pdnsutil add-zone-key parsemail.org zsk 1024 active rsasha1-nsec3-

Not sure if this was my mistake, or a bug in the program, or a
combination, but FWIW, the reason I used "rsasha1" as my argument
instead of "rsasha1-nsec3-sha1" was because I felt like that was what
the help output was telling me to do:

root at ned:~# pdnsutil add-zone-key help
Oct 15 08:17:55 Reading random entropy from '/dev/urandom'
Syntax: pdnsutil add-zone-key ZONE zsk|ksk [BITS] [active|inactive]
root at ned:~# 

Thanks for your help,
