Hmm.  If you don't care about recovering the zone data, why were you bothering to serve it in the first place?

If I had a transition already planned and implemented, and the replacement system was adequately tested to the point where I was willing to switch over early due to an unexpected system failure, then I might consider switching a production system over to something else.

The other 99% of the time, if something in production breaks, you replace it with exactly the same thing.  Making any kind of infrastructure change is handled in a process which is not emergency recovery from a failure.
