Total BS.  Those records should have been re-signed at least two
weeks ago to work in with zone's expire timer.  If they could not
sign the zone two weeks ago they should have gone insecure by having
the DS records pulled from the root.  There is no valid excuse for
letting your zone go to invalid.
