Description

When a proper functioning bind server is running fine for a zone with 'allow-update' enabled for local-nets it is possible to change the records of this zone. But when the changes are saved the bind daemon responds to queries with a 'SERVFAIL' message.

The reason for this is the existence of journal files. After manually removing these files the service can be restarted successfully.

According to the bind admin manual, chapter 4.3, (https://www.isc.org/bind-9-11-arm/) it is necessary to freeze (rndc freeze) the zone before updating it. After the update it should be thawed (rndc thaw) to reenable DDNS.
Is it possible to add this to the code?
