We can only recommend that you do. 2.9.22 has known security issues, please
see http://doc.powerdns.com/html/powerdns-advisory-2012-01.html

You would need to run at least

The effects are hard to predict, depending on where you got your 2.9.22

We would really recommend upgrading to a version of PowerDNS Authoritative
Server that is current.
