Recommendation for Open Source DNS

Hi Experts:

I was trying to decide between open source DNS for Linux.  I wanted few recommendations between open source DNS servers.

I need the DNS server for my application servers. I will build he server from source and then customize for my applications.

Any recommendation or comparative statements about them would be of great help.

Best Regards,

-Sunnybrad

BIND is the most popular and well-supported DNS server for Linux.  Nearly all of the DNS root servers run BIND -- last time I checked only 2 did not, they were running djbdns.

I'd venture to say that at least 75% of the DNS servers on the internet use BIND.

No need to compile it from source if there is a package available for your distribution.

Woops I meant NSD, not djbdns.
