Since 2.6, linux has supported nanosecond granular time in stat(2) returns. BIND has a comment in the code that it might use it, but continues to ignore it.

As of 9.9.3b2, named checks the time of (at least) zone files on disk (expanding to include include files in 9.10.0a2). Because the check is only done to a granularity of seconds, changing the zone file twice in the same second can cause BIND to decide that it need not reload the zone, even though it is out of date.
