I don't know what's used most, but what I use at home is just:
% more nsd
# do hourly nsdc update, to update the slave information
# 17 over the hour
17 * * * * root /usr/sbin/nsdc update

ie. a cronjob which checks every hour. If there are no updates, there
is no ouput and you will not receive mail. If there is some problem
connecting to a server you will get mailed every hour however.

There is some stuff in the development pipeline, but I don't know the
precise status of that.
