That's the right behaviour when a key is added to the zone for the first 
time: without such a delay the most pessimistic scenario is that a DS 
record submitted to the parent at the same time gets published 
immediately.  In this case we could end up with a validating resolver 
retrieving the DS record from the parent but accessing a copy of the zone 
from a nameserver that has not yet received the update adding the key. 
Under these circumstances the resolver would report a bogus zone.
