If you have two zone files defined in your named.conf like such...
(This isn't how natetech.com is set up, just an example...)

zone natetech.com {
	type master;
	file "natetech.com";

zone natetech2.com {
	type master; 
	file "natetech2.com";

Then your filesystem has a file called "masterzone.file" and two
symlinks from "natetech.com" and "natetech2.com" pointing to
"masterzone.file" you can simply edit the "masterzone.file" and reload
both zones with "ndc reload natetech.com; ndc reload natetech2.com" when
changes happen.  Only works if both zones are exactly the same.

Just a thought that might save you some time if you have lots and lots
of domains that are exactly the same.
