Did you realy provisioned with BIND flat file (not BIND_DLZ)?

Bind flat file isn't reccommented and there were thoughts in the past, 
to remove it. That's why the Wiki HowTo only talks about BIND_DLZ and 
the internal DNS.

You should move over to BIND_DLZ. It had never tried that, but I guess 
it should work like the switch from internal DNS:

Here you find information about how to setup BIND_DLZ:

You should try the switch over to BIND_DLZ first. And if you still have 
problems, just come back to the list. :-)
