Well, hours of head scratching then I send this email and suddenly
find something that is probably very relevant:

     "auth: slave zone soa check does not use tcp if udp answer was
     truncated #10447"

I'm guessing that bind9's behaviour has changed to be more correct and
there probably won't be any configuration change on that side that I
could/should use to make this work again.

So I expect my best option is to hasten my upgrade to PDNS 4.7.x and
make use of "secondary-check-signature-freshness=no".

Unless there are other solutions I am unaware of?
