Hi guys,

just a more detailed explanation on what the statement "allow-transfer".

Does it prevent to anyone to get the complete list of the registered hosts for a particular zone or does it apply also 
to machine that want to act as a server for a particular zone.
In "DNS and BIND" they say that on slave you should deny zone transfer to anyone, but does it prevent that anyone using 
nslookup get anyway the complete list of the hosts.
