Put master=yes in your config. Do not put slave=yes in the config on 
your MySQL replication slaves. Set the domain type to MASTER. Notifies 
will now work, both automatically and via pdns_control. To avoid useless 
log spam on your native slaves, configure 
only-notify/also-notify/ALSO-NOTIFY accordingly on the master.
