The named(1M) daemon process on a DNS server may log the message "... failed while receiving responses: not exact". Example:21-Mar-2011 11:01:24.931 xfer-in: error: transfer of '2xx.xx.xx-ADDR.ARPA/=IN' from 2xx.xx.x.5#53: failed while receiving responses: not exact


What is the reason for that message, and how can that get corrected?
