I asked on the list some days ago, but I got no reply.
Eventually I just cheated, created a ns-update user with read rights to
/var/named/*, setup sshd, and wrote a shell script that runs from cron
every 2 hours, grabs the entire zone tree (I have subdirs int_view and
ext_view), and replaces the zonefiles on the "secondary". It then runs
rndc to reload.

Appears to work, and also means the config files are the same.

If anyone wants copies of scripts, etc, email me. It's not rocket science

This does seem a recurring problem....
