Both of these should be fine. The only thing you need to worry about is if
changes to a zone are loaded for the first time in a newly-started server:
i.e., you've updated the zone and then shut down the server, or shut down
the server and then updated the zone.
We expect to have this addressed by the time 9.9.0 is final.
