I forgot to tell, that I did not find out when the serial got messed up.

I was able to reduce the serial in the unsigned file. I forced signing, this repaired the signed zone on the (hidden) master. I deleted the zone file on all slaves and restarted bind. All nodes loaded the correct zone file after this.
