Zone transfer from tinydns to BIND9

Hi All,
I have one more question. I want to replace 2 tinydns servers with 1
master BIND 9 and 1 slave BIND9. I have managed to configure BIND as a
slave server and transfered all the zone files using axfrdns from
tinydns master server.

Now I can easily migrate from tinydns slave to BIND slave. I know
there is no master/slave concept in tinydns. Basically I can replace
one of the tinydns servers with BIND slave by transfering all the zone
files from tinydns to BIND slave using axfrdns.

How can I replace another tinydns with BIND master server? I have the
named.conf file for BIND master. How can I convert the zone files from
tinydns to BIND format for master server? I can't use axfrdns for
master? Can I?
