Well, I am conversant with BIND and djbdns. I know their different 
styles of behaviour, configuration and I have an idea of what they can 
take and what they need when serving thousands of zones as authoritative 
servers or handling 24,000 queries per second as caching servers (NO, 
BIND does not cut it). I have setup 'stealth' masters with slaves doing 
the actual authoritative work with BIND. I have used BIND's INCLUDE 
directive to allow me to just update one file to update the MX records 
of thousands of zones. Just the basic stuff really that BIND admins on 
this list do everyday.

What were you trying to achieve again? Nobody can help you unless you 
help us help you.
