You could do this using MySQL as your backend and doing MySQL
replication between your dns/database servers.
MySQL replication is relatively simple in concept, each database can
slave off another, so that any changed made to the master are replicated
out to the slave. In order to have this work bi-directionally, database
server A is configured as a master, with B slaving off A. A is then
configured to slave off A, completing the loop.
There's plenty of online documentation on configuring MySQL replication,
and I use MySQL replicated back-ends in our PDNS environment.
