I'm not complaining about the server answering as authoritative also for
domains that are of type SLAVE, I'm complaining about the fact that the
server with slave=off behaves exactly like the one with slave=on, and
tries to initiate a zone transfer from the master.

Why "contacting a master and trying to do an AXFR" is not no be
considered a slave functionality?

And I also think that even answering for SLAVE zones with slave=no isn't

Can you tell me which are the functionalities disabled by the switch?

I obvious that not having a single SLAVE type domain in the DB makes the
server not asking for zone transfers, but in this way I cannot use the
NATIVE mode without having the web fronted to write in both databases.
