	I don't think that even signed notifies are going to solve the 
whole problem.  At least part of the configuration details of where a 
secondary pulls copies of the zones from is completely outside the 
spec of the DNS protocol, and IMO that is for good reason.

	Right.  You've got bozos wanting full commercial-grade services 
but at dial-up prices.  Sorry, you don't get a free ride.  If you 
want full commercial-grade services, then you have to be willing to 
pay the price.

	I'm sorry, virtual domain hosting just isn't that expensive. 
Hell, it's probably cheaper than their DSL account.
