No problem.  There were a number of ways to do this.  Using TSIG
this way is one of the less complicated ways and works when you
don't have multiple addreses to play with.

You can do a similar trick in older versions using server clauses
to set the tsigs in each view to daisy chain the zone transfer.
It's a lot more error prone however and has other issues.
