Well, since I don't know about the suggested provider, here's my
concern - let's say I manage your DNS on my servers, and you want to
provide your own local servers.  How do you get a copy of the latest
zone?  Your IP must be listed in my server so that it is allowd to
perform AXFR queries.

Do you know how DNS works? Slaves don't just ask for a transfer willy- nilly. Slaves are known to the primary and they get told when to ask.

They will also probably provide us with 3-4 hosts which we can use for
DNS.  If You, me, and one other person each contribute two IP
addresses on different network, that puts the zope.org zone in pretty
good shape, because various caching nameservers will handle the
trouble of determining which authoritative record is best for them to

DNS may seem like a low-load service, but if you were to run a DNS
provider yourself on a single machine, I challenge you to maintain 90%
uptime.  The last time I worked on a large DNS implementation we had
twelve machines in each of two geographic locations - dual xeon
machines with lots of RAM that did nothing but handle round-robin DNS

I have no idea what you are talking about. This is not some huge DNS service that we need. We need to serve exactly one zone. This can be done from a Palm Pilot, to be honest. I have run DNS services for years and years and don't share any of your doubts.
