Are there any write operations? In native mode I guess there shouldn'T 
be any write queries - maybe only for DNSSEC key management.

Maybe if you do some fancy stuff only against the PowerDNS which uses 
the Postgres-Master then it should work.

AFAIK PowerDNS does online-signing - hence the signatures are not in the 
DB. Hence, every node does signing on its own (A PowerDNS server does 
not know if the Postgresql DB is a replication slave or master).

What exactly is your problem?
