Updates should be sent to the nameservers listed in the NS RRset.
If the MNAME matches one of the listed nameservers it should be
tried first. The reason for this is to allow update to work
through firewalls to stealth masters.
The slaves forward the update (via the zone transfer graph),
potentially changing only the id, and the response is sent back
correcting the id if required. TSIG does NOT cover id specifically
to allow this to work.
Before you tell us about nsupdate in bind 9 being broken, we know.
