Partly. Either you modify the zone and only configure BIND only to read 
the file, or you ask BIND modify zone and only write to the file.

There's no sane way of doing both (having multiple processes modifying 
the same file results into mess).  However when the zone is dynamic, 
you can instruct BIND to to wha tyou want, you just won't do it by 
editing the zone but by sending changes to BIND.
