If you recognize that configuring DNS may be more complex then using 
one box as master for all zones and another box as slave for the same zones
you realize that manual configuring is a must for all other cases.

Typically one has several nameservers and a mix of master and slave zones
in each + a heritage of "odd" zones ( say slaves for other organizations ) here 
and there.
