Description Cesar Augusto M. Gomes 2003-03-25 11:44:28 UTC

with bindconf. So, I edit the named.conf and add the entries of reverse slave 
zones manually using the following format:

        type slave;

I have tried to use Bindconf with the option Slave Zone and the domain, but this don't work.
But, I like to use the Binconf. So, my question and sugestion is:

named.custom instead.
