Secondary DNS zone Reload issue.

Secondary DNS zone Reload issue.
I have one Primary DNS server and two secondary DNS servers.
one of the two scondary DNS server can reload the zones from the master with no issue.
But the other Secondary DNS server can not reload the zones from the primary DNS.
What I noticed in the properties of the zones in the Primary DNS server if I go to NS tab I see a star (*) next to the IP address of the Secondary DNS server that has issue, then I remove that server from NS tab then readd it manually and reload the zone, after a while it reloads succefuly.
WHat I noticed also When I try to remove the DNS server from teh NS tab I get a message saying "Do you want to delete host record SECONDARYDNSNAMESERVER.MYDOMAIN.COM [10.10.10.10]"
But I can 't see that host record for that DNS server in the zones at all, since there is no zone for MYDOMAIN.COM in that DNS server, though this DNS server is member of the domain MYDOMAIN.COM.

I restarted primary and seconday DNS many times and still have the same issue. I enabled logging in the Secondary DNS that has issue and noticed that it's the primary DNS that is refusing the transfer of the zone.

I have many zones, so I would like to know if there is a quick solution to fix this issue, instead of going zone by zone and do what I have done so far to fix one zone at a time.

Thanks

I fixed it in a way that doesn't make sense to me.
I went to each zone and removed the server under NS tab, then just added where it was (I mean under NS tab) then reloaded the zone, after a little while   the records showed up for the zone.
