Tell me about it, I'm in the middle of testing a DNS server I coded at
present because non of the exist daemons were suitable for the criteria,
PDNS was mostly ok, but in the end I was forced to roll my own out of
frustration because most free DNS daemons don't handle large zone files
in an efficient manner, or they leave the handling up to a backend like
LDAP or a SQL server.
