I am told that the disable-xfer configuration item does not  entirely work
as intended.  I have to put in:


in my pdns.conf file for zone transfers to work at all.

With this line and without any allow-axfr-ips= lines, it will permit zone
transfers from anywhere.

If you want to restrict zone transfers to certain IPs, be sure to insert an
"allow-axfr-ips=(ips here, comma-delimited)" line.  AXFRs are denied from
anywhere else.

Hope this helps.
