query-source is used when the server has to make a recursive query.
transfer-source also exists in BIND 8, and it's used as the source address
by a slave server when pulling a zone transfer from the master.
notify-source is used by a master server when sending NOTIFY messages to
the slaves, to inform them that a zone has been updated.
