That won't work either because a static master zone won't read the journal
so it will be perpetually out of sync with the other version.

The classic solution is to make one view a slave of the other. Configure
the slave zone with `masters { localhost key my-tsig; };` and configure
the master view with `match-clients { key my-tsig; };`.

Another alternative (if one view is recursive) is to use a static-stub
