Bind slave not updating

// // // // Provided by Red Hat bind package to configure the ISC BIND named(8) DNS // server as a caching only nameserver (as a localhost DNS resolver only).

// // See /usr/share/doc/bind*/sample/ for example named configuration files.

The problem lies with serial which is not updated to current date and number of changes per each day after a zone is changed......

I realized this when I added several A records to a zone and then checked the dns_soa table, the serial was still 2009012401 instead of 2009012405 or 2009012415I have some slave DNS server running BIND that do zone transfers from my ispconfig server.
