i did have a second dNS but it was not configured as secondary so maybe
thats why it worked fine. no zone transfers ever took place until recently
though.  that and the fact also s if the primary dNS went down chances are
99% of the rest of the services would be down too so it wouldnt do
anything :/(web,ftp,mail,radius,etc ..)
