Are you using the --no-xml flag? There is an issue where adding zones to the 
database only followed by an update removes zones which don't exist in the 
database. (Normally we regard the zonelist as the authority.)

So if you add zones without altering the xml you need to use the "ods-ksmutil 
zonelist export" command to create a new zonelist that reflects the database.

Is it the case that the --no-xml flag is defaulting to on? What message do you 
get when you do a zone add?
