Thanks Ton, I figured it too. How would you suggest to use zone2sql to get
rid of the second SOA RR?

I've checked the source-code (latest svn-version and the one I use 
myself) and as far as I can tell no
code is available to handle the special case of 'zone=-'.

Zone2sql just tries to 'fopen' the filename and throws an error because 
it can't open '-'. Perhaps STL
should handle the special filename but I'm not familiar enough with STL 
to answer that question.

So it looks like the documentation is ahead of the code in this case.

Kind regards,
