Replicate DNS

I have a Primary DNS server setup for websites name server resolution, IE ns1.<mydomain>.com  & ns2.<mydomain>.com

I have created another DNS server as a backup that will serve as ns3.<mydomain>.com & ns4.<mydomain>.com

Is there anyway to replicate the DNS from NS1 and NS2 to NS3 and NS4 so that everything is in sync?  I am adding and removing things on a weekly basis and its becoming very tedious to remember to do all of the DNS servers.

Take a look at the following:

It explains DNS Replication and forcing replication.

Well, this article appears to be more AD related and I am not running AD because to me just for being a webhost its over kill.  Maybe I'm wrong?

This explains how to force replication when not using AD

Look under the "Replication Problems" section.

Did you add Secondary Zones to NS3 and 4? Presumably NS2 is already running a Secondary zone?

Then you'd just increment the serial number (as described above) to allow a secondary to see the zone has changed and initiate a zone transfer.
