Syntax
       /usr/etc/named-xfer  -z	zone_to_transfer  -f db_file -s serial_no [ -d

Description
       The transfer daemon, is a server that is usually run by the daemon, but
       it can also be run manually with the  given  arguments.	 The  transfer
       daemon  runs  on	 a  BIND/Hesiod secondary server and pulls BIND/Hesiod
       zones from a primary server.  This daemon is not run  by	 default,  nor
       can it be started up from

Options
       -z zone_to_transfer
			  This	option	is  required  to  pull	a  zone.   The
			  zone_to_transfer argument specifies the name of  the
			  BIND/Hesiod  zone that the daemon will transfer, for
			  example, dec.com.

       -f db_file	  This option  is   required  to  pull	a  zone.   The
			  db_file argument specifies the name of the file into
			  which the pulled zone information is placed.

       -s serial_no	  This	option	is  required  to  pull	a  zone.   The
			  serial_no  argument  should  be  set	to the current
			  serial  number  of  the  SOA	record	for  the  zone
			  zone_to_transfer.   If  serial_no  is	 set to 0, the
			  zone is always pulled.

       -d debug_level	  The debug_level argument sets the  debug  level  and
			  determines  the  amount  of  debug information to be
			  displayed.

       -l debug_log_file  The debug_log_file argument specifies the file  that
			  will contain any debug messages from the zone pull.

       -t trace_file	  The trace_file argument specifies the file that will
			  contain a trace from the zone pull.

       -p port		  The port argument specifies the port	that  will  be
			  used	instead	 of the default nameserver port listed
			  in

       -n		  This option must be used when the daemon is  running
			  in  the  network  safe  mode.	 It indicates that the
			  zone pull must be authenticated.

       -a  auth_type.auth_ver
			  This option must be used if the daemon is running in
			  the network safe mode.  The auth_type argument indi‐
			  cates what type of authentication  to	 use  and  the
			  auth_ver  argument  indicates	 what  version	of the
			  authentication  type	 to   use.    Currently,   the
			  auth_type  must  be "kerberos" and the auth_ver must
			  be "one".

       servers...	  The servers argument is a list of Internet addresses
			  from which to pull a zone.  If the first host cannot
			  be ddreached, the transfer daemon will try  to  pull
			  the zone from the next host listed.
