I need really something very simple:

I have 2 domain name servers, I need them to be multi-master so I will 
put a mysql instance on each one,
the two mysql servers in sync whith each other.

when one of the servers goes down, the other continue to work.

There are very few entry in hte database let;s say 10 entries of 
important internet services which must be
always avaliable... that's it nothing complicate.

now I coudl succesfully build my own bind RPM for CentOS with mysql 
backend support.
I simply used mysql-bind driver patches

now I am trying them out

thank you for all the suggestions you gave me
