Hi Simon,

thanks, but actually, not that much. Sorry I was busy in different projects.

This change now broken my configuration, because this no longer accepts
the same combination of parameters without fatal error. Could it be made
as warning instead? It do not think it should be fatal, soa is
initialized to good enough value, contact and primary server are not
mandatory for normal operation.

Patch changing it to warning included.
