5. Types of Servers

Servers do not really have ``types''. A server can be a primary for some zones and a secondary for others, or it can be only a primary, or only a secondary, or it can serve no zones and just answer queries via its ``cache''. Previous versions of this document referred to servers as ``master'' and ``slave'' but we now feel that those distinctions -- and the assignment of a ``type'' to a name server -- are not useful.
