Having an invalid transfer-source makes bind9 silently just ignore transfers

Bug Description

Having a transfer-source set to an ip the machine does not have (due to historical reasons, ip change etc) will make zone transfers become silently ignored..
A log entry comes when the master notifies, but then nothing.

Jan 27 19:37:31 XXX named[27432]: client YYY#33048: received notify for zone 'ZZZ'
and nothing more happens. No warning is printed at startup either.

Release: 12.04

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.

It seems likely that this bug might apply to the upstream project also, so the next step is to test the latest upstream source and report the bug upstream if applicable. Are you able to do this for us, please?

Setting Importance to Medium as a workaround is available.

Changed in bind9 (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Medium
