Yes, that sounds strange. The first ZSK should be pre-published according to this time:
Ipub = Dprp + min(TTLsoa, SOAmin)

The following ZSK:s should be pre-published using this time:
Ipub = Dprp + TTLkey

We will have a look at this.

The signer have a back off mechanism for doing re-tries. 1 minute, 2 minutes, 4 minutes....
