Default Phantom DNS entry causing problems

I am running around 30 web sites on an ISPConfig machine. The system is also providing DNS (thorugh ISPConfig). I recently removed an old site, and ever since, each time I add a site or make a change to an existing site through ISPConfig, DNS will fail to restart.

The first time this happened, it took me a while to figure out what was causing the problem, but eventually I noticed that named.conf still had an entry for the old site:

zone "" {
type master; file ""; allow-query{"any";};
but that the zonefile listed ("") no longer existed.

I deleted the entry in named.conf manually, then restarted DNS with /etc/init.d/named restart

Everything worked fine, until the next time I added a new domain through ISPConfig. Once again DNS failed to restart. I checked named.conf and sure enough the entry for was back ...

This has reoccurred many times now, and I have gotten used to manually editing named.conf and restarting, but I would love a way to fix this. Can anyone tell me where the entry in named.conf is coming from?

Thanks in advance
