I'd recommend that you leave the handling of NOTIFY messages to the
name server. What makes you think you need to send them every 10

    David> Where can this be configured?

It can't. If you want this feature, you'll have to hack the code and
maintain your hack forever more. This wouldn't seem to give a good
result for cost/benefit analysis. If you *really* must have this
feature, see src/bin/named/ns_notify.c.
