This book uses one terminological convention that merits special
note. There are many BIND configuration substatements that you can
use within several different statements. For example, you can specify
allow-transfer within a
zone statement, within an
options statement, and within a
view statement. When I'm
referring only to the first use, I call it the
allow-transfer zone substatement. When referring
to any of the three, I just call it the allow-transfer
substatement. While I'm not sure this
convention is common, it seemed like a natural, compact way of
expressing the idea.
