I am running Fedora 15, which reports bind-9.8.0-5.P2.fc15.x86_64.

$TTL 604800     ; 1 week
domain IN SOA Hostname.domain. hostmaster.domain. (

The capitalization is accurate here.

As best as I can tell the systems are identical other than samba data
and the obvious domain name stuff.

dns-hostname exists in sam.ldb. It gives
servicePrincipalName: DNS/hostname.domain
servicePrincipalName: DNS/hostname.domain

Reverse dns is correct. I did have to renumber the ip addresses on this
machine, but as best as I can tell all forward and reverse dns is
correct. No left overs.

Thank you for any suggestions. I am not seeing anything in bind logs
that helps.
