Three days and no response...

When running samba as an active directory controller with bind as the Dns
server and adding a secondary domain controller I have installed bind on it
as well.  The wiki's basic bind configuration creates a single master bind
server with no replication so I've got two master servers and no

Could someone please clarify how bind is supposed to be configured with
multiple ad controllers?
