Sorry, bad wording. I meant that NSD is started, stopped and reloaded by
systemd. The nsd.service doesn't do any special except that.

Ah, that was helpful. I rechecked the IPs on both hosts and NSD configuration,
they are correct. Then I turned off 'outgoing-interface' on host A and added
'versobility' to both servers to figure out what is going wrong. On host B
there were no changes but on host A I saw that it drops connections from host
B due to not matching (ACL) ip address. That was it, as both hosts has several
IP6 addresses and NSD configured to listen only on specific addresses I forgot
that it doesn't mean that NSD will use the same addresses for notification. I
reread the nsd.conf(5) and added 'outgoing-interface' for both servers. Now
all works fine.

Thank you.

WBR, Vladimir Lomov

She just came in, pounced around this thing with me for a few years, enjoyed
herself, gave it a sort of beautiful quality and left.  Excited a few men
in the meantime.
