5) One more newbie comment - be sure to check /var/log/messages for
errors.  nslint does not catch everything.  If you are pounding away
making numerous changes, you can quickly check for log error messages by

# rndc reload

This will cause BIND to re-read the zone files.

You can also add this to /etc/rc.conf:

named_flags=" -d 4" (or pick a number you like)

which will start bind with the debug switch on and generate a great deal of traffic to your logs. Or you can do this:

named_flags=" -d 4 -g", and rather than logging the traffic, bind will print it to stderr (your screen), and you can watch it as it runs.
