Updating dns server nsd is not the configured local nameserver

(I'm being charitable in classifying djbdns as a "maintained offering", because, even though it was orphaned in 2001, its newly (a/o 2007) open-source (arguably) legal status permits third-party maintainers to put together an unofficial 1.06 release to bring it into the 21st century -- which may or may not happen but is worth hoping for.) axfrdns is the TCP-based AXFR zone-transfer server.
Another DNS nameservers available on a Linux systems are NSD ( Name Server Daemon) or djbdns ( tinydns ).
Both are lightweight alternatives to bind9 DNS server and have less RAM requirements. In this article we will not go into details of what Domain Name Service ( DNS ) is nor how DNS works.
(NOTE: Absent third-party patches, the various djbdns utilities omit support for IETF NOTIFY, IXFR, outgoing AXFR, DNSSEC, TSIG, A6, DNAME, bitstring labels, Dynamic DNS, negative TTLs (NCACHE), and other modern DNS features.) It is generally a good idea to set up axfrdns running on the same IP as tinydns, if you want support for large packets, or will offer zone transfers.
Anyhow, one limitation of both the Albitz book and troubleshooters.com's DNS page is that they concern BIND, solely.
It completely replace three softwares at once (local and caching dns server, dhcp 4 and 6, both coordinated, and r(t)advd). I set 5353 here and pf will forward local # dns queries to this port.
# # Before august 2015 # port=5353 # ## Never forward plain names (without a dot or domain part) domain-needed # Never forward addresses in the non-routed address spaces.
At this stage we will need to create a new zone file for a domain In IP address of a DNS server in many cases is provided by your Internet provider.
Navigate to /etc/bind/ directory execute following sequence of commands to navigate to zones/master/ /etc/bind/zones/master directory will contain a zone file for a domain. IN A 192.168.0.10 ns1 IN A 192.168.0.10 ns2 IN A 192.168.0.11 www IN CNAME At this stage the bind DNS server can resolve an IP address mapped to a host. Alternatively if you are google fan use 126.96.36.199 or 188.8.131.52.
