Hi Jan,

We've never really optimised the zone transfer performance of PowerDNS
because it has not really been an important use case so far.

Are you measuring an incoming zonetransfer? Our outgoing?

It may very well be than an outgoing one is pretty slow.

Is it important to you? We could change PowerDNS if needed.
