Is this for a .de zone?

Google returns many many hits for that error, all of them related
to .de somehow. This link seems to lay out the registrar rules nicely:


Your problem is certainly not related to bind itself, but to the data
in your zone file. .de has a reputation of being somewhat ever-the-top
pedantic and your zone files seem to have something in them that the
registrar doesn't like.
