Interesting, thanks for bringing that to my attention (it hadn't
occurred to me to test with a mostly-slave system).

I'm purely guessing, but I wonder if there's some rate-limiting
due to the SOA queries slaves have to send to their masters.

I very much doubt the raw zonefile format is the problem. 
Generally that'll reduce the zone loading time by almost half.
