Install one or more etch boxes, put BIND 9 onto it, and configure the
sarge machines to use them as forwarders.  This is sufficient if the
network between them is trusted.  You could also forward requests to
your ISP's resolvers (subject to the same constraint).

I could provide you with an untested 9.3 backport for sarge (or you
could compile one yourself).
