I think it would make more sense to switch them. However, I'm not sure
what the effects vs gain will be for the community that has implement
things who would be in for a surprise. I'll leave that up to the nsd
team. But I was quite surprised to find a non-zero return code in the
simple case of using nsd-xfer to obtain a single zone.
