In BIND-9.2.2-P3 and possibly some earlier versions, there is a "flush"=20
command which can be issued through the "rndc" program. If you just want=20
to flush the cache of a particular view, you can say "flush [view]".=20
NOTE: I've never actually used this rndc command, so I can't vouch for=20
its efficacy. I'm just telling you what "rndc -h" advertises...
