view "external-chaos" chaos {
    match-clients { any; };
    recursion no;
       zone "." {
           type hint;
           file "/dev/null";

       zone "bind" {
           type master;
           file "master/db.bind";

           allow-query {
           allow-transfer {

Using this example i obtained from
http://www.cymru.com/Documents/secure-bind-template.html, I am wondering if
its possible to use zone options like allow-query, etc with bind-dlz. I am
assuming from your response about views, it is just a matter of setting up
addional tables and altering the sql queries used by bind-dlz.
