Two parts:
1. If you change the serial number on a zone record to a number that is less than the original does that count when Internic updates its cache?

2. Can someone post an example of a perfect zone record? Bind 8

1. No, it has to increment to trigger the update AFAIK.

2. Perfection with BIND is hard to find :) Anyway, here's an example:

; Zone file for bogus.domain
; The full zone file
@ IN SOA ns.bogus.domain. hostmaster.bogus.domain. (
200106121 ; serial, todays date + todays serial #
8H ; refresh, seconds
2H ; retry, seconds
4W ; expire, seconds
1D ) ; minimum, seconds
NS ns ; Inet Address of name server
MX 10 mail.bogus.domain. ; Primary Mail Exchanger
MX 20 mail.bogus.domain1. ; Secondary Mail Exchanger
localhost A
ns A
mail A
