Auto-detection and deletion or suspension of non-authoritative DNS zone files
Although I'm very happy to be educated otherwise, I believe that non-authoritative zone files on a WHM server (or in a cluster) have no value, and should not exist.
By being allowed to exist and effectively be "active", the problems they cause are, for example:
1. WHM admins working with them, thinking they're authoritative, when they're not.
2. The auto-detection feature of WHM of the correct mail exchanger (local or remote) can be compromised by incorrect information in a non-authoritative DNS zone file.If they do/must exist, then either they should either auto-inherit the values of the authoritative zone files, or they should be disabled and clearly marked as such, i.e. so that it's very obvious to WHM admins which zone files are non-authoritative.

Thanks for your consideration.
