My understanding has been that two views that are masters for
a zone can safely share a zone file if the zone isn't dynamic (e.g.
dnsupdate, dnssec auto signing, etc), but that two views of
a slave zone shouldn't do that: you could have two
different views independently rewriting the same file, a bad thing even
if the files are known to be identical. Furthermore, allowing that
conceivably show no problems very much of the time, masking the actual
If I'm wrong, that would be a good thing to know.
