Thank you for the review. I took the second possibility, because I think
it is the more general approach. There might be one drawback. Depending
on how the IPA DNS server sets the master name field in the SOA record
all dynamic updates might be send to a single server. If you prefer the
other possibility in this case I can easily modify the patch.
We discussed this approach yesterday on IRC with Simo and the result is
that it's fine. This patch also works OK, so ACK unless Simo has any
A single server is always hit with updates because of a bug in IPA -
Bind instances on replicas are not added as NS records (tracked as
ticket #1034 in freeipa trac).
