most of the slaves can keep in sync except a few frequently updated zones which is also the reason I open this email thread :-).  

Great to know you go with DB replication. It is our end goal as well. it is a intermediate state with BIND master -> PDNS -> BIND slaves currently. 

speaking of slaves, does PowerDNS Recursor can fully replace BIND in your experience? i.e. forwarding, caching and DNSBL, etc.?
