Hi ISC people,

I was just reading the release notes, and noticed:

"The default value of the max-ixfr-ratio option was changed to
unlimited, for better backwards compatibility in the stable release series."

Thank you for this. Just yesterday, I was looking at XFRs between BIND
9.16.15, and a downstream Knot DNS server, which kept getting AXFRs
instead of IXFRs. I was going to open an issue about this in GitLab.
However, upgrading to 9.16.16 restored the previous (expected) behaviour.
