Description

/pkg_edit.php?xml=bind_zones.xml&act=edit&id=0

populates the "Serial" field with the serial number of the current zone file.
When a change is made and "Save" is executed, this serial number is preserved.
As a result, secondary servers do not recognize that a change has occurred.

When the "Save" action is executed, if a change has been made to the page,
the "Serial" field should be treated as if it is unset, permitted a new
serial number to be generated.

The broken behavior is observed with Bind package 9.14_4

did it work differently before?
you need to manually change the serial number every time you make any changes

I have no idea. I've just started using Bind on pfSense

I've noticed that. And that behavior in my opinion is wrong because it can all too easily result in an end user making a change and that change not being propagated to the secondary servers or replace any cached copies of data on the internet.
