"normal" is subjective here.  Of course, by "normal", you mean BIND-centric.

In any case, ZoneEdit does not send NOTIFY requests.  I tried to start
a thread on this last tuesday or so and received no replies.  Time
marches on.

Anyway, everything except these hosts need to be removed from the rotation:


I'd love to see more backups once they have copies of the zone.  If
you want to grab a copy of the zone, you'll have to transfer manually
from ns1.zoneedit.com or ns7.zoneedit.com, from one of these IP

I offered last week to try and set up a NOTIFY mechanism from my own
system based on an hourly cronjob, but there was no interest, so I
decided not to prioritize it.  I'll have to write a couple of scripts
for this, so it's not going to happen overnight anyway.

Three nameservers is fine for now.  Eight would be far better.
