I know it's not the easiest thing to do, since it's an external
application, but with big zones with frequent updates (your RBL list
being a candidate) won't you be spending most of your CPU time
continuously compiling the new zone with zonec?

Would it be possible to copy the DB-file and do the IXFR-changes in that
file directly, and then tell NSD to use the new file once done?
