Yes, the views facility doesn't directly deal=20
with zone transfers - so you will have to work=20
out the logic of which view is pulled from where=20
when you are defining views.

I do know (as I have it working) that a zone=20
defined within a view may be a slave to another=20
zone. What I haven't got to yet is having two=20
views of one zone slaved from different masters.

Lastly, I would suggest that your arrangement=20
where two machines have two master slave=20
relationships, in different directions, between=20
different views, stands a good chance of causing=20
confusion - at least for any admin trying to=20
figure out what's going on !
