Well the original poster mentioned he had this issue with BIND-9.10.5-P1
on NetBSD-8 sparc. He then got the same version of BIND from ISC and
built it on the same machine, this time checksum was correct and the
issue went away.

Not sure if BIND in NetBSD differs in any way from ISC version. If no
difference and different people can reproduce the issue, then something
somewhere got corrupted, either source code or binary images.
