rbldnsd is a very small and fast DNS daemon which is especially made

rbldns program found in djbdns package.

rbldnsd is extremly fast - it outperforms both bind and djbdns
greatly. It has very small memory footprint.

The daemon can serve both IP-based (ordb.org, dsbl.org etc) and
name-based (rfc-ignorant.org) blocklists. Unlike DJB's rbldns, it has
ability to specify individual values for every entry, can serve as
many zones on a single IP address as you wish, and, finally, it is a
real nameserver: it can reply to DNS metadata requests. The daemon
keeps all zones in memory for faster operations, but it's memory usage
is very efficient, especially for repeated TXT values which keept only
