Read the PowerDNS documentation on "Supermaster" setups.  Basically, you 
designate your master DNS server as a supermaster, and when the slaves 
receive the announcement from the master, they automatically add that 
domain into themselves, and initiate a transfer.  Removing domains would 
still require manual intervention, however.
