usally because the remote server is not listening on its accounting
port or not configured for accounting  - the proxy in the middle
doesnt get a response so cant respond to you - hence zombie.

we see it commonly with remote servers that deal with AAA
for some of our services...after a brief discussion (which
usually involves a 'they do what?' or such, we change the realm
definition in proxy.conf to be just auth and drop the
accounting locally.
