Just wanted to clarify the position on a few things in DNS and wanted an experts opinion to the following:
Is it still best practice to utilise a forwarder as opposed to root hints within DNS? I was always told that using root hints would increase network traffic on a lease line and possibly expose DNS - is this still correct?
Also on a DNS server - is it best practice to remove the 127.0.01 address and replace with the IP address of the DNS server - ie point the DNS to itself 1st and any partner second?
If someone could give more detail why the above is or is now not correct I would be most grateful.
