Caching-only Name server does Zone Updates

Hi Folks,


Hope you can guide me in the correct direction.


Our DNS is configured as Caching-only Name server. However, it's still
performing Zone updates like a Slave Name Server.

Is it possible that a Caching-only Name server performs Zone updates, if yes
under what conditions is this possible.


Thank you in advance for all your help.
