Did you install freeipa with the --setup-dns option ?
And does your client use the freeipa dns server in that case ?

If either answer is no, it is normal to see the update fail as a non
freeipa dns server wouldn't be able to accept the update (unless you
manually configured the external server to handle GSS-TSIG updates).

If both answers are yes then we may need to activate debug logging in
named, as it is supposed to work.
