Re: two bind9 masters

 I haven't found any cons, at least none I can think of right away. What I did 
 in my setup is.

 1. setup a ssh key pair using the root user 
 (http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/l-keyc.html) and place the public 
 keys on the other servers.

 2. create your records as you would on your master dns server.

 3. create a simple shell script like so 
 /etc/init.d/bind9 reload 
 /usr/bin/scp /etc/bind/named.conf* root@server1.domain.com:/etc/bind/ 
 /usr/bin/scp /etc/bind/reverse.* root@server1.domain.com:/etc/bind/ 
 /usr/bin/scp /etc/bind/db.* root@server1.domain.com:/etc/bind/ 
 /usr/bin/scp /etc/bind/named.conf* root@server2.domain.com:/etc/bind/ 
 /usr/bin/scp /etc/bind/reverse.* root@server2.domain.com:/etc/bind/ 
 /usr/bin/scp /etc/bind/db.* root@server2.domain.com:/etc/bind/ 
 /usr/bin/ssh server1.domain.com /etc/init.d/bind9 reload 
 /usr/bin/ssh server2.domain.com /etc/init.d/bind9 reload

 the ssh key pair is used to scp the named.conf and all the records to the 
 other dns servers and reload bind. some may prefer a different configuration 
 but this setup works for me. hope this helps you out with what your tring to
