I know the KZPBA-CX (and its differential cousin the CY) far too well
for my own good :) I've never successfully used both internal and
external ports even though the card itself is supposed to auto detect
and either do a soft term or not depending on what's connected to it.
I've had a LOT of problems with the internal SCSI cable on the 433 and
500, pka0_soft_term should just be 'on' so if you're having issues
it's either the card or the cable.
Other thing to check is that your devices aren't terminated
themselves, providing TERM PWR is fine but not actual termination.
