dhcpd.conf trouble on linux

We have a 192.168.200.0 255.255.248.0 network set up for wireless devices to receive dhcp addresses.  Originally what was happening was that they would only receive 192.168.200.x addresses, then they would get no lease available errors.  Now I see address requests going out for addresses accross the whole range, but I see timeouts saying it was unable to do zone write backs.  Here is the contents of the file regarding that range:

subnet 192.168.200.0 netmask 255.255.248.0 {
        range dynamic-bootp 192.168.200.1 192.168.207.240;
        option routers 192.168.207.254;
        zone 200.168.192.in-addr.arpa {
                primary 192.168.250.126;
                key "orcrist";
        }
        zone 201.168.192.in-addr.arpa {
                primary 192.168.250.126;
                key "orcrist";
        }
        zone 202.168.192.in-addr.arpa {
                primary 192.168.250.126;
                key "orcrist";
        }
        zone 203.168.192.in-addr.arpa {
                primary 192.168.250.126;
                key "orcrist";
        }
        zone 204.168.192.in-addr.arpa {
                primary 192.168.250.126;
                key "orcrist";
        }
        zone 205.168.192.in-addr.arpa {
                primary 192.168.250.126;
                key "orcrist";
        }
        zone 206.168.192.in-addr.arpa {
                primary 192.168.250.126;
                key "orcrist";
        }
        zone 207.168.192.in-addr.arpa {
                primary 192.168.250.126;
                key "orcrist";
        }
}


Can someone tell me what is wrong with this section and why it is not updating any zone except the 192.168.200 zone.  Thanks.

Try putting the zone declarations in the global scope only and removing the quotes from the TSIG key.

On the BIND side make sure allow-update is set correctly for those zones.

If none of the above works, paste your dhcpd and named log excerpts from when the problem occurs.
