OK, nice to know, at least. =)

However, it doesn't seem to work flawlessly (or far from it, actually).
When I do a DDNS update to that zone, it doesn't update until either
after a long time, or after I restart named. I set the TTL of those RRs
top 1800, and at first I thought that might be it, but:

1. It takes far longer than half an hour for the RRs to update.
2. My other DDNS zones (that are only in one view) update immediately.

Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong?

That was my thought as well, but it didn't when I tried. =)
