Hi John,

It doesn't need it, but that is not the default.

If you set database: "" in nsd.conf, then no nsd.db is used, and the
contents are written to the zonefile.  This is a good setting to use.
It uses less memory and less disk space, and the zonefile is kept up to

If you really want no zonefile at all, and then it has to transfer the
zone every time, you can set zonefile: "" in the zone entry in nsd.conf.

Best regards, Wouter
