Thank you so much Elfyn! I'm extremely green with PowerDNS. I haven't even
set it up yet. I'm just trying to make my own documentation, but I believe
I'm going to go with Mysql as my backend. This information helps me
significantly. No worries on the brain lag, mine does it with or without the
coffee :-) Thanks again.

Eek, disregard that paragraph please. My, er, morning coffee hadn't quite
kicked in. The so-called MNAME field is the first part of a record's
"content" field, which would be "ns1.nyfle.co.uk" in my previous example.
