That's true. From the other question you seem to be using LDAP; have you
been using a performance analysis using different backends and if so do
you have some results for us?
I'm also interested in a approximately number of domains / records you
are serving and about any instabilites you may have come accross.

I think those who are setting up namesevers should be familar with the
base of a record, etc which is outlined in detail in RFC 1035.
