An admin next door that's had Bind+RPZ up for a few weeks already just
emailed me that the last spamhaus rpz zone timestamp he sees is:

  -rw-r--r-- 1 named named 236K Mar 25 14:01 rpz.spamhaus.org.zone

Nothing new after that for the rpz. zone.  The drop.rpz.spamhaus.org are
current for him too.

Figuring that out if that's related is way above my pay grade!  But the
timing sure looks good.

Is it safe to just let bind keep erroring out on these fails until the
zone automagically returns?  Or is it best to disable that rpz zone
policy for now?
