Good question.  It's unlikely to be the simple replacement of one OS
version or one BIND version for another -- we would know about it if
there was a general problem with people running BIND on FreeBSD.

Unfortunately, having made my best guess, I'm afraid I'm all out of
suggestions.  Other than this: take a close look at the way both of
those boxes are set up, and try and isolate the differences in
configuration between the two.  The answer should lie somewhere in
there -- something you did differently on one of the boxes.  Isolate
that, and you're home and dry.

Which is easy to say, but not necessarily easy to do.
