I would expect that you will find a log line like
discard_zeroes_data=0 and discard_zeroes_if_aligned=no: disabling discards

So you need to tell DRBD that you know that your storage backend
reliably returns _zeros_ for unmapped blocks, by setting
	discard-zeroes-if-aligned yes;
(and hope that is in fact the case)
