comment Why do authoritative and cached names servers return different records for ANY type?
@ithinkihaveacat I'd expect the ANY query results to have a cache entry of its own. I'll try to work this into the answer later today, preferably with a source.

comment Should we allow DNS zone transfer to root-servers and parents zone NS servers?
Can you show what was actually going on in more detail? Logs? It doesn't really make any sense that the root servers would try to AXFR anything from you.

comment bind9 with $GENERATE in PTR records and a lots of 'ignoring out-of-zone data'
@AntonSamets You rather mean something like "128 separate files, one for each zone", right? Also, you do get the exact same problem with completely static records. gist.github.com/hlindqvist/1014c922624db96e0d71

I suppose that works around the problem with the startup time caused by your many thousands of warnings, but the problem with your setup that causes the warnings is still there, you just turned off logging (which may very well get rid of other log entries that you may care more about as well).

The question refers to TLS/SSL settings but the screenshot shows an http url. What is the setup like in this regard?

comment DNS mail record concatenates IP address and hostname together
@meridionaljet As for the described behavior, can you clarify the incorrect record that you see? The value of an A record cannot be anything but an IP address, so you can't get a domain name appended there. The value of an MX record cannot be anything but a name (ie, it cannot be an IP address), so it wouldn't make any sense that you tried to put an IP address there (however, I suppose if you did you could get a result like you describe... but that's not what the included zone data looks like). So I'm a bit confused as to what is/was going on.

@meridionaljet If you are querying the authoritative server directly (as per Law29's suggestion) caching/TTL is not a factor. If you get a different serial number you do not have the latest version loaded for whatever reason.

comment Roots server do not update my new nameserver (CentOS bind DNS server)
@hugeitc You would do it through the registrar (as noted in the answer), normally they provide an interface where the customer can change the delegation.

In what way does it not load? Do you get an error code from your browser?

What does "the error" refer to, same as in the question? You can't start named using rndc, for one thing it has no such option and it's also not possible conceptually; as I explained rndc is a tool which communicates with named, it requires named to already run before it can be used.

The error from rndc is quite likely caused by named not even running in the first place (rndc talks to named, if named isn't there it fails). As for the problem itself finding the logs would surely be helpful, however named-checkconf -zj (optionally with -t .... if named runs chrooted) may be a good starting point that doesn't rely on logs.
