You can.  You can use it as you want to.  I've used it to stop the
server, you should also be able to get it to refresh/reload slaves zones
from the master, but I've had marginal success with that (yes, I have
got the keys set right, if anybody's about to make that suggestion).

Ideally, you want your systms to take care of themselves.  Properly
setting up master and slave servers will do that.

It's just a tool, there's no obligation to use it.  You don't really
have to disable it either, as you can set named to only pay attention to
rndc on the local box (i.e. not be exploitable, remotely).

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
