patch for xfrd.h

xfrd will only transfer a maximum of 32 connections at once.  This quota is not per IP, meaning some down/slow servers may cause backlogs when hosting large number of zones.

The attached patch should help mitigate the impact on these larger servers with minimal risk.

Hi Jared,

Thank you for the patch, I have put it into the code base.  There may be a need for a configurable option (at some point), if people need different values.

Best regards, Wouter
