Qip allows us to delegate managemant of a domian(s) and subnet(s) to a LAN 
admin(s). They are then responsbile for all their own day to day DNS 
changes. Qip does this pretty well. I won't go into it's many other system 

My questions was, among other DNS mangement packages, which of them solve 
the distributed managment prolbem, where you have many admins around your 
organization who make changes on their stuff?

I don't want a package that looks at the world only from a highly 
centralized viewpoint, where you have a handful of super users who make all 
the changes.
