PowerDNS supports AXFR; just configure it as a slave and point it to the
master. If they don't notify you, you'll have to trigger something
magical upon changes.

If you really want to do it manually, and assuming you're using a
database back-end, look for zone2sql. Note that you'll probably want to
use `dig +onesoa`.
