Due some currosity your Debian Bind seeems missing required Bind-dlz options,

This Samba wiki explains it : https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/DNS,  in exact words not compiled in  required BIND-DLZ options :

--with-dlopen=yes \
--with-dlz-bdb \
--with-dlz-ldap \
--with-dlz-filesystem=yes \

And here an HowTO for Debian to fix that :

( just updated for debian as well. )

Verify your Bind9 build options with "named -V" or "named-sdb -V": 

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best Regards
