  • In the properties of your zone, go to Start of Authority (SOA) tab and adjust expires after value to the one you want.

  • Hi KudoYuando,

    As Mr X has pointed out, expire time could help meet your requirement. If the expire time is prior to a successful zone transfer, the secondary server will expire its zone file. In another word, the secondary DNS server will stop answering queries.
