works in conformance with RFC 1035, section 5.1:

  The last two forms represent RRs.  If an entry for an RR begins with a
  blank, then the RR is assumed to be owned by the last stated owner.  If
  an RR entry begins with a <domain-name>, then the owner name is reset.

You'd need to use '@' to explicitly set the owner to $ORIGIN.
