Does the MNAME field of the SOA record need to be the *canonical* name for
the primary master for the zone, or can it be an alias?
What happens if the name of a slave is used in the MNAME field instead
of the primary master (say, if there is a desire to keep the location
the primary absolutely secret, in a stealth server setup)? The notify
feature uses the MNAME value in its determination of who to send NOTIFY
messages to, but where else is it used?
