BIND is the Apache of DNS servers: it does a lot of things and it is heavily configurable. If you do not need all its features, the best choice (I only consider free software) is, IMHO, nsd <URL:http://www.nlnetlabs.nl/nsd/index.html>, which is much smaller (and therefore probably more secure) and much faster (although you may not see it on a lightly loaded name server). You may consider PowerDNS also: <URL:http://www.powerdns.com/>. It has an interesting feature, you can use various backends (and even write your own) to manage the actual data store.
