I am not sure from a Linux point of view.

Is this a today issue?  There are widespread power outages here.

Did you change your serial number after your last update of your files?  And then restarted DNS again?

The serial number of Toronto.com file is 42, which is valid.

Traditionally, people make it something like

2013122203

Which is year month day and last two digits for the number of times you modified your file today. So 03 would mean that it is the fourth version for today.

If you don't change it, it would not load the changes.
