It's making my brain hurt ;), but I kind of see what you're suggesting. A
single server both master and secondary for the same zone in different
views. That should work for the "both the same" part. Then if I configure
the secondary zone to forward updates to the primary zone both views would
be the same and clients in either view could update. I guess the primary
zone would have to be in the view in which the IP of the actual server
resides, so the forwarded update from the server to itself ( 8-/, will that
even work?) hits the primary.

I think it's kind of a deficiency of bind not to support this type of
configuration more cleanly. It would be nice if you could have both split
view zones and standalone zones on the same server. Perhaps a feature
request :)?

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll play with it and see what happens.
