Hi Peter, 

Thanks for the warning. In fact I installed a 4.4.1 to house what is currently
in my provider's pdns that is that old 3.4.2...

To migrate all the entries it would have been usefull to use axfr but the
provider claims he cannot selectively enable axfr per-domain. I just wanted to
understand it it is true...
