Why bind9 on 8.04 server?

Just installed 8.04-1 server. Doing updates it says:

     The following packages have been kept back:
       bind9-host dnsutils libbind9-30 libisccfg30

To my knowledge I don't want bind running on this machine. I will be using 
dnsmasq to be a simple caching dns and dhcp server for the Windows machines on 
the backside of this box.

Why do I have bind9-host or, alternatively, why is it held back?

Can I just uninstall it?
