Oh Thanks - I understand that - I can't comprehend the logic behind composing _same_ $ORIGIN paragraphs over-and-over again - this is an example:
irish A 126.96.36.199
brit A 188.8.131.52
irish2 A 184.108.40.206
brit2 A 220.127.116.11
irish3 A 18.104.22.168
brit3 A 22.214.171.124
irish22 A 126.96.36.1992
brit22 A 188.8.131.522
irish39 A 184.108.40.2069
brit39 A 220.127.116.119
irish29 A 18.104.22.1689
brit29 A 22.214.171.1249
...see - What i meant!
It keep splitting on some un-even way --- that "$ORIGIN bar" and "$ORIGIN bar2" keep switching back-and-forth...
Is there any way to have ONLY ONE paragraph per $ORIGIN?

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.
