There is no need to allow zonefile transfers out of the master servers
except to designated secondaries and a large number of good reasons to
deny AXFRs by default - commercial, security and load related.
Sorry, I don't buy the arguements about secondarying the entire *.nz
space into servers which aren't designated secondaries - it just causes
lame server logfile entries and probably results in higher bandwodth
consumption than just letting normal DNS NS caching algorithms do their
thing - which they do quite efficiently.
Lame servers are logged when a zone has an NS record pointing
at a nameserver which is not authoritative for the zone.
In this case, there are no NS records pointing to the nameservers
which carry the slave zones. Why would lame server warnings result?
