It isn't a very good idea to use the same key for zone transfers and
for rndc. It is common to allow zone transfers to third parties, and
you don't want them to be able to fiddle with your name server!

Best to have separate keys for rndc and different keys for each secondary
(or for each set of secondaries under the same management).

Biscay: Northwest 5 or 6, occasionally 4 later. Moderate or rough. Fair. Good.
