Hi Håvard,

OpenDNSSEC should respond to SOA queries. There are a couple of cases
where it isn't able to. See the soa request function [1]. Maybe the zone
is expired? In any case you should find some hint in the logs of the
signer. grep for "[axfr]" in combination with "58.39.128.in-addr.arpa".
This should, according to the code provide some additional information.

Best regards,
