Surely, a well-written implementation with a stale hints file will
query the old address once per reload at most, and after a successful
priming query, not at all.
A stealth slave of the root zone with a misconfigured AXFR target
might query the old address once per REFRESH.
We could wave our hands about what poorly-written implementations
might do, but I'm not sure that would get us anywhere.
