s/bind/bind v. 8.x/
ISC knew a couple of years ago that the BIND v. 8 codebase was hopeless.
That's when they started the rewritten-from-scratch 9.x project
(http://www.isc.org/products/BIND/bind9.html). Which is now at 9.1.2,
and is now seasoned enough to rely on.
However, I'd use one of the other projects I mentioned for minimal-role
setups, especially caching-only. Just because of the bit about simpler
code and security.
On my main machine, I need a full-function nameserver, but am
considering Yaku-DNS or MaraDNS on a secondary box, and friends have
reported pdnsd to be excellent for workstations.
