An administrative chunk of DNS data which has one set of nameservers and, in Bind, a single data file. (Sweeping details, other brands of name servers, and edge cases under the carpet, swoosh, swoosh.) In other words, if you had thought.org hq.thought.org branch.thought.org as 3 domains you'd face a choice: did you want to have all the records for thought.org and its two sub-domains intermingled and maintained on the same set of domain servers as a single administrative unit, i.e., zone, or did you want to have more that one zone, in which case you'd have NS records in the data for thought.org which pointed at the nameservers at which one could find the data for hq.thought.org and/or branch.thought.org? Or, to look at it another way, you need at least one zone per 2nd level domain and can have no more than one zone per domain at any level. --Jon Radel j...@radel.com
