I was suprised at the amount of zone files and amount of delegations they
get a day as well. Naturally the five hundred is a peak and does not happen
every day but I do not want to reload the server every half hour or so
as naturally it is quite busy.

Thats true, but I was hoping that there was some dynamic way instead of 
just a ndc reload.

I went through the source and it doesn't look too difficult to implement such
a feature - I was wondering how other people handle these situations.

Currently we reload our servers every 5 minutes (for customer turnaround time)
but the machines don't seem to handle it very well.
