That's just an assumption. In the last decade I had enough systems
where this was not the case. Authorative nameserver and local
resolver are two fundamentally different services, it's just a
coincidence that they're often provided by the same deamon.

No, a clean design would be having two separate services, which
just *may* be provided by the same daemon.
