There was a partial patch posted some time back to add ACL support to 
PowerDNS, so you could allow specific servers to AXFR specific zones 
from your server. I have that incorporated into a patch I use on our DNS 
servers, and it works well. I can either (a) break the stuff out just 
for that, or (b) send you the entire patch. Let me know which you prefer.
