I'm trying to streamline the addition of DNS records to an NSD install. It looks like it uses the same syntax as BIND so this question may be relevant to either.
It seems like the convention I'm seeing in the current zone file is to separate the SOA, MX, NS, A, CNAME, TXT records into their own stanzas in the zone configuration file, in our case with a semicolon separating one stanza from the next.
I believe this is just for aesthetics and the only real requirement is that the SOA is the first record, the order after that shouldn't matter.
I'm wondering if anyone else has can validate that assumption
