[nsd-users] xfrd process not starting

I have an instance of nsd running with 50k domains (each with only 6
records) and I get a less continuous output to the log file of:
 nsd: error: malloc failed: Cannot allocate memory
 nsd: warning: xfrd process 14256 failed with status
This is even though there is ~3G free RAM on that box.
This nsd instance is never going to either receive an xfr request nor
send notify to another instance. It is strictly the single
authoritative server for these domains (they are for e-mail testing, if
it matters). Is there any way to disable the xfrd functionality
completely? Or do I have to go through and patch the source code to not
spawn that child process?
