Thanks for the info. Strange that Ubuntu has decided to do such nonsense 
for a stable distribution. Good to check what you'll get before you get it.

Is it enough to add that repository to my package sources before doing 
the dist-upgrade? I haven't seen this "apt preferences" stuff before but 
it looks like it.

And still, what changes will I have to face between 3.3.1 and the 
current 4.0.1?

The alpha version of pdns-server which Ubuntu included in 16.04 is
seriously broken, especially with mysql backend. Don't use it.

Last I heard (which was the beginning of August), the pdns people were
still working on getting at least 4.0.0 final into Xenial. In the mean
time, you're better off using the packages which they release themselves:
