According to the MARC spec, 035 doesn't support '9' as a valid indicator. My very uneducated guess would be the invalid indicator is causing the underlying system not to index it?

I thought maybe this was because there's already another 035 field (with blank indicators) that's an OCLC number so I temporarily removed it... but that didn't solve the issue.
