above is plain wrong, as you don't want your w2k-server to get the zones from
your new host, but in fact vice-versa. you have to allow zone-transfers at your
w2k-side to your new host (how to configure this I'm the wrong one to ask,

you have to enlist your new host as NS into your domains running at your
w2k-host. also I'd suggest to configure your w2k-host as super-master in pdns
and finally you shouldn't forget to have some backend running in pdns to store
your zones.

so here comes my suggestion: first make pdns work (eg. you know how to create a
master-zone and handle it), then see how a zone-transfer works from one
nameserver to another, third if you're pretty sure about what you're doing try
to enlist your pdns into your w2k-hosted domains as slave and get those zones
all transferred.
