<para>
Zone transfers can be sent using two different formats,
<command>one-answer</command> and <command>many-answers</command>.
The <command>transfer-format</command> option is used
on the master server to determine which format it sends.
<command>one-answer</command> uses one DNS message per
resource record transferred.
<command>many-answers</command> packs as many resource records as
possible into a message. <command>many-answers</command> is more
efficient, but is only supported by relatively new slave servers,
such as <acronym>BIND</acronym> 9, <acronym>BIND</acronym> 8.x and patched
versions of <acronym>BIND</acronym> 4.9.5. The default is
<command>many-answers</command>. <command>transfer-format</command>
may be overridden on a per-server basis by using the
<command>server</command> statement.
