The  "intelligent" means that dns server return the corresponding A record IP address according  to the source IP address of the tenants.
My dns server is an Authoritative dns server. It hosts the zones of different tenants.

I need to update config file name.conf frequently Because The views and ACLS are added frequently.
So i want to know whether have commands or API to add acl and view like the command "rndc addacl" or "rndc addview"?
Updating config file frequently may affect other zones in this dns server.
