Subject: [PATCH] Check SOA owner names in zone transfers

An IXFR containing SOA records with owner names different than the
transferred zone's origin can result in named serving a version of that
zone without an SOA record at the apex.  This causes a RUNTIME_CHECK
assertion failure the next time such a zone is refreshed.  Fix by
immediately rejecting a zone transfer (either an incremental or
non-incremental one) upon detecting an SOA record not placed at the apex
of the transferred zone.
