Bind zone transfers not occuring

OS type and version Debian 10 and 11
Webmin version 2.001
Virtualmin version 7.3-1
Related packages Bind

Ok guys, we have a problem.

We have a primary server and two GPL DNS servers.

the problem is that for some reason and I for the life of me can’t work it out the zones no longer want to transfer from the master to the slaves.

If I for example go to a zone in question and click the test zone transfer then it reports back that everything is good and bind transfers should succeed too.

if then however I click apply zone the following Error appears on screen.

NDC command failed : rndc: connection to remote host closed This may indicate that * the remote server is using an older version of the command protocol, * this host is not authorized to connect, * the clocks are not synchronized, * the key signing algorithm is incorrect, or * the key is invalid.

Keep in mind that these servers have been doing zone transfers for quite some time, this is only a recent thing.

Also when I check the syslog I see a lot of the following error.

zone refresh: could not set file modification time of ‘/var/lib/bind/’: permission denied

Any ideas?
