You have until the expiry counter expires for a given zone.

We typically run our expiries at a week to allow for this type of failure.

Subject: Master server offline

Our master server machine had a drive failure and looks like it will be offline for some time. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I thought I remembered that something bad can happen to the dns resolution for your zones if the master is offline for too long. Is there anything to this or am I just dreaming? As long as the secondary can answer request, we should be ok?
