[nsd-users] RFC glitch regarding IXFR

NSD cannot serve IXFR, and to avoid asking for it if it runs
on another node, it requires explicit configuration on that other
node that AXFR should be used and not IXFR.

RFC 1995 on IXFR states something that makes the above incompatible:
"If incremental zone transfer is not available, the entire zone is
returned." -- section 4, on "Response Format".

This is not a serious incompatibility, but it could simplify the life
of new adopters of NSD somewhat.

Hopefully useful,
