When writing the zone file on a slave, BIND uses $ORIGIN so that all
records just have a single label. So instead of writing:
foo.bar IN A 126.96.36.199
it will write:
foo IN A 188.8.131.52
If you have a zone with lots of levels of subdomain, the file will have
lots of $ORIGIN statements as a result.
