Is there a white paper or books or tutorials out there for implementing DNS in-house? I have a basic understanding of DNS. But if I host my own DNS, I am not sure what involves. Thanks

Here's a historical view of BIND, the classic DNS software:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BIND   And here's references for Microsoft DNS: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/network/bb629410.aspx

While it covers a lot of BIND specific material, it also has a lot more general info.  From the Amazon description of the book:

Whether you're an administrator involved with DNS on a daily basis or a user who wants to be more informed about the Internet and how it works, you'll find that this book is essential reading.

Topics include:

    What DNS does, how it works, and when you need to use it
    How to find your own place in the Internet's namespace
    Setting up name servers
    Using MX records to route mail
    Configuring hosts to use DNS name servers
    Subdividing domains (parenting)
    Securing your name server: restricting who can query your server, preventing unauthorized zone transfers, avoiding bogus servers, etc.
    The DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) and Transaction Signatures (TSIG)
    Mapping one name to several servers for load sharing
    Dynamic updates, asynchronous notification of change to a zone, and incremental zone transfers
    Troubleshooting: using nslookup and dig, reading debugging output, common problems
    DNS programming using the resolver library and Perl's Net::DNS module

The IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) has volumes on more than you need to know about DNS and the DNS protocol https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4033

Tell us more about what platform you want to implement DNS on?

My vendor is taking care of the server and I believe it will be Windows Server, probably 2013. I will look in more details all of your interesting links. But it looks like what ever OS you use, you need to run the software BIND. Correct?

Each DNS full resolver has list of some 13 root name server IPs (they are actually geographically distributed so it is more machines than that)
Full resolver queries them, thay say - try this one for .de
Then it queries .de server for domain name
That says - dns server for ich.de is ...
So it queries that one (which shuld be yours and serve your domain)

But you need to tell your country  LIR what your DNS IP is...

@bobon - No. While BIND exists for multiple operating systems, there are other DNS server software packages. For example, Microsoft has its own, integrated with Active Directory.
