Please explain -- *why* do you need multimaster?

If you have "traditional" master-slave and the "master" goes down, the slave will continue to serve the last information it had (at least, until the expire timer goes "boing").
So, make Server_A be the master, Server_B the slave and set expire to be a couple of weeks. Assuming Server_A goes kablooie, you have 2 weeks to promote Server_B from slave to master...

Ah, but now, suddenly, it *is* complicated...
Seriously, unless you have some pathological use case traditional master/ slave is way way more stable...

>> A nice way to deal with what Riccardo's needs is to use ISC BIND configured statically (keeps all advantages of a pure BIND system) but from a MySQL database that has web apps for end users to manage their own zone data. BIND was not meant for end users with little to no DNS expertise to manage their RRs. Some middleware is required.
