I run a small number of domains myself but the impetus for switching to DLZ
was a client I work with who has several hundred zones and he was using his
upstream provider to manage DNS at the time and the turn around to get
things changed was unacceptable. I started using the old flat style format
and then moved to the database version as it was much easier to create a web
interface (another one of his employees made a really nice ajax interface).
The best part is that changes are immediate, no having to restart Bind now.
