: Please note that when you update the zone on the master - by providing

Some secondaries are configured only to allow AXFRs from a specific
address, which Murphy says will be not the default.  I think that while
it is creeping featurism, its something that has to be done.

'src:', in the zone definition sounds not terribly dumb. :)

If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that
will cause the most damage will be the one to go wrong.
