[nsd-users] NSD 4 workflow for adding zones on the fly

To add a little more specific information, here is the specific man page
entry I am interested in:
       addzone <zone name> <pattern name>
              Add a new zone to the running server.  The zone is added to
the zonelist file on disk, so it stays after a restart.  The
              pattern name determines the options for the new zone.  For
slave zones a zone transfer is  immediately  attempted.   For
              zones with a zonefile, the zone file is attempted to be read

More simply: I guess the question is, how do we clean out the zonelist
