Yes, you can point multiple zone { } definitions at the same file, but you
have to be careful what you put into the file: use only relative names,
e.g. just "foo", for names underneath the zone, and use "@" to refer to
the zone itself. Names which are constant for all zones, e.g. if you're
directing mail for all of these zones to a single set of mail servers,
should, as always, be fully-qualified and dot-terminated.
