Hi all,
I got asked by a nsd user a while ago over the following behavior:
(1) A zone was added or removed in nsd.conf
(2) nsdc rebuild was run
(3) nsdc reload was executed

Now in syslog the following message can be found:
corrupted database/bad config, zone example.com. 
in db /var/db/nsd.db, but not in config file. Cannot load database.
Please rebuild database and start again.

PR 193 concluded that the requirement to do a restart is ok, it was open
whether the message should be changed.

I think something like 
corrupted database /var/db/nsd.db or modified zone configuration.
Please rebuild the database or restart the daemon.

is more likely to guide the user to the problem. What do you think?
