This is a no-brainer. 1. If you're running only a primary and no secondaries, your DNS is an accident waiting to happen. 2. You're required to have at least two nameservers operational for each domain anyhow. This is true of the InterNIC, it's true of USC-ISI (the .US TLD), and I'm sure it's true of the foreign registries too. If you ARE running at least one secondary, it can pick up the slack while the primary is relaoding. > Add all new domains to a > nameserver that has a small enough number of zones that it can easily > handle being reloaded every hour.

And I think this is an excellent idea. -- Steve Sobol [firstname.lastname@example.org] Part-time Support Droid [email@example.com] NACS Spaminator [firstname.lastname@example.org] Spotted on a bumper sticker: "Possum.
