FWIW, the docs in the 9.9 ARM say that you can just increment the serial 
number in the unsigned zone, and that it will then do the right thing 
with the automatic signing. That turns out not to be the case, you 
actually have to increment the serial in the unsigned zone to be higher 
than the one in the signed zone (which implies checking it by hand 
first, as Evan suggested).

You also have to do specifically 'rndc reload <zone>' after you edit, 
just plain 'rndc reload' won't cut it. I've also tripped over that one 
myself, but at least I learned from the experience. :)
