We had a discussion about djbdns on a local maillinglist in
Berlin. It's not offering all features that bind offers. I don't
know if zone transfers are supported currently, some time ago you
had to fiddle around with rsync or such things. For non-trivial
setups (i.e. some hunderds zones and a handful secondaries) I
would not recommend such approach but use bind8 instead. If you
need cryptography, I think there is no way around bind9
currently. For a small private caching only server djbdns may be
a nice solution.
