I found the problem, It seems there was a corrupt record imported form the 

When running the dnsImport script I noticed I had some strange records 
getting imported that did not show in the UI so I looked in 
/home/restore/etc/named and I noticed some files that seemed strange. I 
delete theses files and delete all the records one more time. When I 
re-imported the records I did not see the strange record getting created. 
The DNS server has now been up 17 hours and all records appear correct in 
the UI.

Thanks to Brian who suggested it could be a corrupt record. Also thanks for 
the delete all dns records script.
