After upgrade to 4.5.6. domains are not synchronized to name servers. On the name servers the named service is stopped and cannot be started:

[root@ns1 ~]# service named start
Starting named:
Error in named configuration:
/var/named/named.zones:8: zone 'domain.tld': already exists previous definition: /var/named/named.zones:3
/var/named/named.zones:18: zone 'domain2.tld': already exists previous definition: /var/named/named.zones:13
/var/named/named.zones:10248: zone 'domain3.tld': already exists previous definition: /var/named/named.zones:10243
/var/named/named.zones:10258: zone 'domain4.tld': already exists previous definition: /var/named/named.zones:10253

Also, when for a registered domain Use custom Name Servers option is selected in CP, some DNS records disappear from the domain's DNS zone.
