on accomplishing exactly this task. [ ]
Since reading that document, I have been unsuccessful in locating any
documentation of this feature on ISC's website.

I don't know metazone,  but webmin permits to deploy automatically new zone
to a predefined dns slaves "cluster". Work perfectly, very simple to use.

Best regards
