This may be a bit misleading log message: The query code checks whether 
there is already a notify acquired. If so, there is a check to see if 
the incoming notify has a serial newer than OpenDNSSEC knows of. If not, 
it will log this message.

"Look, I got a notify already and need to transfer anyway" was perhaps a 
better log message. Or perhaps "updated notify serial to <new_serial>".

The notify_acquired that is being checked is stored to xfrd.state and 
thus being restored on restart.

Perhaps the bug is that there is a corner case that the notify_acquired 
was not reset properly?
