i can't really say which one is better.. i seem to like dnscache's
performance and can keep it on a leash (from a resource perspective, see the
wiki entry). Another reason being that i come from a qmail shop and have
always been comfortable with dnscache (never gave bind+caching_ns a chance
except for authoritative nameservers).
