Yup. It worked. Nevertheless I'm in an "optimizing mood":

Assume only one zone changed -- why issue a ndc reload? 
A "ndc reload zone" should suffice. 


a) My knowledge of Make is exhausted...
b) Does ndc accept this syntax: "ndc reload zonea, zoneb, zonec, ..." ?
c) If not, does it hurt to say "ndc reload zonea", "ndc reload zoneb" in
   quick succession ?
Is there a generic recipe for that ?
