maybe some alternative of NOTIFY mechanism?

However that's apparently why I missed it...
I think I'll try with opendnssec. I even don't like the automatic mechanism
much because of bulk updates which I do quite often.

Is it possible(planned) for bind to sign slave zone?
And, are incremental updates possible with dnssec?

I'm thinking about hidden master bind loading (un)signed zones and providing
axfr/ixfr to our public servers
