Depends what you mean by large, one zone file dump is 16M, but we dump 
as soon as there is changes made, the web interface triggers this, and 
then the slaves check for SOA changes every minute...

So no, not real time, but then again we have no real need for updates to 
occur any quicker... But we could if we wanted to by triggering a remote 
update, but again we don't really have a need for updates to occur any
