Don't know, don't really care! I remember bind updates as being semi-magical,
and quite slow. Not to mention the time I tried getting a w2k dns server to
act as a slave to bind8. The poor thing was so sick it had to be killed.

In djbworld there are no slaves. Each dns server is independant, they just
happen to operate off the same zone data. There's no particular reason for
having a master / slave thing, that's just how bind implements things...

If the timestamp on data.cdb changes, the server reloads the data. No
restarts, nice and fast.
