This did it!!! Ronan, you are my hero! =P

But seriously, why should this have mattered? Why would this version of
BIND (past versions seemed to have no problem) not send notifies to slave
NS if they are defined by CNAME instead of A records?

(I shouldn't press my luck here, since it's all working, but I'd still
like to know. =P)

Thank you!
