Look at the man pages for bind (or is it named, I'm on an ubuntu desktop
right now and it doesn't have those man pages installed). It's spelled
out how to set up a primary and secondary DNS setup. I don't recall the
terminology, but I did set this up at my last job and it did work fairly
well. It takes care of the syncing itself.
