i am not a BIND developer, but have you tried using named-compilezone
built from the same version of BIND as the named that generated the raw
zonefile?  i believe the file format was revised in 9.9.x.

    3242.   [func]      Extended the header of raw-format master files to
                include the serial number of the zone from which
                they were generated, if different (as in the case
                of inline-signing zones).  This is to be used in
                inline-signing zones, to track changes between the
                unsigned and signed versions of the zone, which may
                have different serial numbers.

                (Note: raw zonefiles generated by this version of
                BIND are no longer compatible with prior versions.
                To generate a backward-compatible raw zonefile
                using dnssec-signzone or named-compilezone, specify
                output format "raw=0" instead of simply "raw".)
