Set the TTL to something like 10 seconds and the cacheing DNS's will
retire that record very shortly after it looks up.  Adjust 10 seconds 
up or down to fit your needs.  Zero is a valid TTL as well.

Have you looked around for anything else that can do what bind can?  I
have.  djbdns is the closest but his licensing prohibits it from being
included in any decent distro.  I am unsure if I like the concept of
using rsync to do zone transfers.
