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?

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.
