Yes, I know. But with do not use native DNS infrastructure to do this
using NOTIFY? Why create an script in master DNS to check if some zone
are modified and connect on all remote unbound and execute flush.
Doesn't make sense to me.

This idea doesn't break anything, it just implement an easy way to keep
your info fresh into your recursives dns. The principle of RFC-1996.

Am I wrong?
