Comment 4 Robert Moskowitz 2013-02-19 14:12:35 UTC
Bind now includes the hints in the executable.  All it needs is one good address and then it gets all the current addresses.

That said the proper approach is to totally drop the hint zone from the configuration and leave it up to Bind to get the current data.
