No, it is *NOT* fetched ever 30 minutes. The SOA is queried
every 30 minutes (via UDP) and if the serial has increased
then the zone is fetched.

No. Let the root server operators make that choice.
The refresh / retry limits in named are there for ISP's
which slave 10's of thousands of client zones.
