Hmm...so a secondary DNS server would be told by another which primaries it
should trust? Sounds like trouble to me. As does allowing remote
creation of zones. This should not be part of a DNS standard.
Setting aside the security aspect, how would this be implemented? Would
the secondary server poll the primary at intervals to determine how it
should reconfigure itself? Or switch to a "server push" method of
transfer? You're better off setting up a seperate subsystem to manage
