Altering DNS zones from the command line or using COM?

I'm looking for a way to automate DNS zone updates without having to stop and start the DNS service.  Is there any way to access the DNS settings using a COM object?  I know I can do it by manipulating the zone files directly, but I believe this method requires me to stop and restart the DNS service for the changes to take effect, and I'd like to avoid doing that if possible.
