The use of the word "masters" in the configuration of a slave zone is a
bit misleading.  Under most circumstances, you list the authoritative
servers, not "multiple masters".

I have long advocated (for clarity sake) that it should be:

slave {
	type slave;
	authoritatives {;; };

instead of:

slave {
	type slave;
	masters {;; };

But that would break lots of configuration files.  :)
