I suspect you are falling victim to one of the more odd and
perhaps unexpected quirks of DNSSEC.

The DS records for a given name are in fact not authoritative in
the zone named by the owner name of the DS record, but are
instead authoritative in the parent (delegating) zone(!)

All the other record types (including DNSKEY) for that name are
authoritative in the zone named by that same name.

Hope this helps you figuring out the rest.
