We had non-technical issues with replicating SQL so we opt'd to do an 
SQL dump on the primary server and then have a patch/diff system in 
place and then bzip the base file + patch then recombine it at the other 

We aren't actually using PDNS for slaves, but it works just fine for us 
for the master...
