Wouldn't it be much easier and cleaner to make both instances write to a
separate logfile, /var/log/nsd vs /var/log/nsdhm (or whatever you're
preferred name would be)?

There are many (linux) distributions that support multiple instances of
the same server (with multiple config files) out of the box in their
init scripts.
