Default MyDNS rude awaking

Ok I have been running myDNS for a couple of months now with no problems. However yesterday we had a server crash that was running MyDNS. It was not MyDNS fault a NIC went bad. That stopped DNS though since we have a slave DNS server running BIND I thought all was well. I had entered in Zone Transfers the approiate IP and since things were working great before switching to MyDNS I just assumed things were working. They were not.

Here are some of the error messages I am getting in the logs of the slave box.
Code:
transfer of 'example1.com/IN' from 192.168.1.122#53: failed while receiving responses: bad zone
transfer of 'example1.com/IN' from 192.168.1.122#53: end of transfer
zone example2.net/IN: refresh: unexpected rcode (REFUSED) from master 192.168.1.122#53
zone example3.com/IN: has no NS records
transfer of 'example3.com/IN' from 192.168.1.122#53: failed while receiving responses: bad zone
dumping master file: tmp-XXXXC4edYW: open: permission denied
transfer of 'example4.net/IN' from 192.168.1.122#53: failed while receiving responses: permission denied
transfer of 'example4.net/IN' from 192.168.1.122#53: end of transfer
Any ideas on how to fix this or what the heck is going on?

The secondary DNS is trying to get the zones from the primary, but this doesn't work because it's down.
Repair your primary DNS server and boot it, and these errors should go away.
For now, you can ignore them.

The server is fixed and it is running DNS. The secondary server was never getting transfers. Do the transfers go over another port other than 53 with MyDNS? This is a weird one to me.

You must open port 53 TCP and UDP on your primary DNS. In /etc/mydns.conf, you must have
Code:
allow-axfr = yes

Went back and double checked those things and everything looks great. Any other things that I should check?

It should work then... Did you restart MyDNS?
