I would be looking at a packet trace. I suspect something in the
data stream is causing a issue with a router or some other piece
of equipment. I would take a packet trace on the master and a
packet trace on the slave and compare the data streams from both
places. You could also compare the broken stream with the good
stream to the other secondary.
 
For a workaround you may want to see if you can transfer the zone
from the other secondary.
