Only if 9 is the major version of the library...
Here it seems to be the version of bind, not the shared library.
I have to wonder if it is really worth having a different name for the
newer package version. Are the versions really that different?
Personally, I would prefer to have apt-get automatically upgrade the
package, and that will be disabled once you include the version number
in the package number.
