Do you have Dynamic Update defined for the zone? If so, then the only
safe ways to maintain the zone are through Dynamic Update itself (e.g.
the nsupdate command) or by freezing and thawing the zone (you'll need
to upgrade to BIND 9 for that, and bear in mind that while the zone is
frozen, you'll lose any interim Dynamic Updates, so I don't know that
this can be truly considered "safe"). Combining Dynamic Update with
manual edits and no freezing/thawing is a recipe for zonefile corruption.
