It isn't, at least in my testing. But now that I look harder, I think I see the problem. Before, I had:

  name: vpnc.org
  zonefile: slave/vpnc.org
  allow-notify: NOKEY
  request-xfr: NOKEY

If I add:
  allow-notify: NOKEY
Then "nsdc update" works the way I would hope,

Was there a way I was supposed to have figured this out on my own? That is, I certainly don't see this described in the man page for nsd.conf. Or, am I completely misunderstanding how the nsd.conf file should look for a simple slave server?
