We are using the commercial tool Men and Mice from
http://menandmice.com/. It has a web interface with a syntax checker to
allow non-BIND gurus access to the file. It has a 'windows' interface so
we can administer in depth. It allows us to administer the slaves and
soon the dhcp servers. [There are probably lots of tools that do this,
but this is the one we are using and we are happy with it.]
