Looking for bind9.3.x

The package for bind9 that presently installs in ubuntu server
is bind9.5. That is fine, but we are setting this server up as a
slave to existing bind9.3.5, soon to be bind9.3.6 domain name
servers that run under FreeBSD and work quite well.

	I notice right off that several of the configuration
directives  we use in bind9.3 simply produce errors along the
lines of Ha? when testing the new configurations.

	My question is, can I get a bind9.3.x package for Debian
that will install and run?

	The book DNS and Bind 4TH Edition recommends that all
your DNS's run the same version to insure predictable behavior.
Bind9.5 is getting pretty far away from bind9.3.5 or 6.

	Any suggestions on what to do?

Thank you very much.
