I think you're asking for a REST API or a Web-based interface. Neither
of those exist for NSD, at least not that I'm aware of. If you really
want to go that route, you'd have to create a provisioning system which
subsequently produces zone master files ready for NSD to compile and

(What you _could_ do, but that entails using more software, is to, say,
 set up a PowerDNS authoritative server which has a back-end database,
 and have your NSD slave zones from it. But that is a bit off-topic for
 this list, I think. :)
