It's been my painful experience that (particularly Windows) clients send 
dynamic DNS updates to the MNAME listed in the SOA, /NOT/ necessarily 
any of the listed NS.  (Unless the MNAME happens to be listed as an NS.)

As such, I don't see any confusion over which of multiple NS dynamic 
updates are sent to.

Further, I'd argue that slave NS should be configured to forward updates 
to the master (ultimately MNAME).
