Not yet. In 9.12 we added "primary" and "secondary" as synonyms for
the "master" and "slave" zone types, but we didn't touch any other

In 9.17/9.18, we're going further: "primaries" will work in place of
"masters", and "primary-only" in place of "master-only".

Old syntax will continue working so old named.conf files don't
need to be changed, at least for the next several releases.
