I've encountered customers who didn't want it obvious that they were 
out-sourcing their DNS.

Why would it break zone transfers?  Those are configured with explicit 
IPs, and don't depend on the NS records.  It might break the default 
notifications if the master server is configured with "fetch-glue no", 
but you can resolve that with "also-notify".
