The only mention of processes called "dnsserver" I can find mention of
is a service process spawned by the Squid cache package (to prevent
blocking on gethostbyname(3) calls).
(Well, and there's also a Java component called "DNSServer" in Apache
Java Enterprise Mail Server (http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES).
And there's also the old load-balacing package in Perl called
Stanford::DNSServer based on lbnamed, but that's probably not it, either.)
So, I honestly don't know what that is, sorry.
