I swap databases between 2.9.21/22 and 3.0 in testing setups all the time. I have not run into trouble yet

However, depending on the subtleties of your configuration, there may be other surprises. I suggest giving http://doc.powerdns.com/changelog.html#changelog-auth-3-0 a read before you make the leap. If you're coming from 2.9.21, read http://doc.powerdns.com/changelog.html#changelog-auth-2-9-22 too.

Kind regards,
