BIND Master/Slave Interaction

Let's say I configure BIND on a linux server and specify in named.conf that the server should act as a master. Additionally, I specify an IP address of a slave that is allowed to connect and access zone records.

Now, I configure BIND on a slave server and specify it to look for updates from the IP of my master server.

My questions is as follows: If I create a zone record for example.com on the master server only (i.e. I don't touch the slave), will the slave query the master server and transfer the zone info...

~or~

Do I also have to create the zone record on the slave as well in order for the transfer of info from the master to work correctly?

Basically I am trying to create a name server that has a slave (or two) where all I have do do is make changes to the master without having to touch the slave(s).

Is this possible?

Hi adephue,

I stumbled upon your post from a while ago. Did you find a solution for your DNS replication setup yet?
