Um, how? My primary DNS server has only one IP address, and only one
available, so I can't do a virtual IP or anything. My two other servers
have both internal and external IP's, however, the xfer requests from
the secondaries will always come from only one of those IP's, and I can
see no way to change it.

Mostly, I agree, unfortunately at the moment I can't put any other
machines in place. Having them on the same machine also make it very
easy to make sure data that is shared between the internal and external
domains is kept consistant, by way of $includes...
