Many thanks Louis;  wasn't aware of these parameters.  I realise now that these records would not get scavenged automatically unless smb.conf contains a line:

	dns zone scavenging = yes

which I did not have.      In any case, I have now deleted the offending record and all is well.   What isn't clear is how you show what the existing settings are for the zoneoptions - eg ageing control and refresh interval.   OK you can set the values, but I can't see how you check what the existing settings are.

All the best,
