Microsoft Azure Secondary DNS

I am in the process of moving our cPanel server (which is also a primary DNS server) to a Microsoft Azure VM. Our existing hosting provider uses DNS Made Easy to provide a Secondary DNS service, which works great with cPanel.

However, I was wondering if there was a way to use Microsoft Azure DNS services via some sort of plugin that updates the Azure DNS zones via a background process since Azure DNS does not support domain transfers?

If there isn't an automated process, I will setup my own DNS Made Easy account as their support team has already said they can transfer all 21 domains to our own account.

Hey there! From the cPanel side of things, I'm not sure. If you already have a process in place with DNS Made Easy and they confirmed it will work, I'd go with that, but maybe other users will share their experiences here.
