I had another go and Unless i specify in the zone a NS record for ns4, the
slaves will not create the slave zone. I get this error

++ Unable to find backend willing to host testing.com for potential
supermaster <ip>

As soon as I add the NS record ns4 for the zone it works:

++ Created new slave zone 'livelifefree.com.au' from supermaster <ip>,
queued axfr

This is a tad annoying as I can't specify the 4th NS on the domain at the

Any ideas?
