allow-update option not supported in bind 9 ?

Should work on the master (not secondary - secondary should be getting info
from master - )as such:

zone "" {
        type master;
        file "";
        allow-update {; };

Works for me on BIND 9.2.0

The man pages say that the option "allow-update is supported in bind 9, 
  but if you run " named-checkconf" it tells you that it isn't supported 
in a slave zone ( or altogether ). docs didn't help either.

This was a nice feature in BIND 8 for security purposes.  Is it at all 
supported in BIND 9 or does there exist an alternate ?

Please also reply via email.
