Don't do that. :) Upgrade to 8.3.4 asap. 8.2.3 has a lot of ugly holes.

I want a million dollars....  I'm not going to get what I want either. :)

You have to add the default $TTL, you have no way to avoid it. Here is a
way to do it that isn't terribly painful, assuming that all your files
are in the same directory:

for file in *; do
echo '$TTL 4h' | cat - $file > t && mv t $file

That assumes that you want a TTL of 4 hours, which is fairly standard.
Once you're done doing that, do 'ndc reload' and you should see all
those error messages disappear.

Hope this helps,
