Re: which dns server to use ?

I use tinydns for a company that serves over one billion web hits per
day (not visitors, hits, and no I'm not exaggerating). The authoritative
nameservers serve between 100 and 300 queries/sec on each of five
nameservers, for between 50 and 90 million queries answered per day.

Hardware on those servers ?
Resource usage ?

I'd use tinydns first, then probably nsd, then something else before
BIND (maybe powerDNS). I know BIND better than most people, I did a
technical review for the "DNS & BIND Coobook" at the request of Cricket
Liu, and I still don't use it anywhere I'm not forced to.

I'll take a extensive look at tinydns ...
