I am surprised no one has mentioned Sauron:


The code is a little stale (2005) but a lot of effort went into the  
PHP web code and Postgres schema.  A consultant took the schema and  
scripted (via Perl) DDNS changes from the Postgres database for us so  
no moving zone files out to servers.

This is a nice package that most persons do not seem to know about.
