I was not arguing for or against any statement made, but wanted to speak 
my mind about intent. But to answer your question: No. I think we are in 
violent agreement. You said "a zone should not be published if we have not 
received a new serial". Note that a zone is either published or not. The 
soa serial number is interesting for _secondary_ servers, not primary 
servers. I just wanted to make sure folks understand the premise of the 
serial number in an SOA.
