[snip recursive explanation]

Thanks a lot for this explanation, DNS is still a bit like dark magic to 
me :)

My understanding is that a recursive DNS server (especially one with 
DNSSec support) would make sense in networks with more then just a 
couple of devices, especially since you need a separate DHCP server 
anyway. Of course, this doesn't account for the "I want to tinker" 
factor ;)
