I was noticing logged errors on my end, just this morning, and was going
to ask _you_ about that:

Apr  5 09:30:24 linuxmafia named[205]: client 209.81.13.88#38882: zone
transfer 
'scruz.org/IN' denied

/etc/bind9/named.conf has:

zone "scruz.org" {
        type master;
        file "/etc/bind/scruz.org.zone";
        allow-transfer {
        12.44.186.140;
        12.44.186.142;
        12.44.186.145;
        209.81.13.88;
        66.123.163.226;
        65.119.104.120;
        };
};



As you can see, you _are_ listed as allow-transfer.  I have no idea
what gives.

I'm running bind v. 9.2.0.  What are you running on your end?
