I've never used the bind pdns backend, but if it is a slave,
then it's not using bind files, is it?

Just my point of view, but doing modifications to replication
functions on a production database is something that makes me
very uneasy. I don't see anything that would prevent you from
setting up both databases, with replication, before actually
putting them into production, so in your stead I'd probably do

After all, if you're juggling two machines, there is nothing
that hinders a mysql database on the bind server existing, and
being replicated to from another server :-)
