Well, your choices are bind, djbdns, and microsoft.

I'm assuming you're using a unix box, so Microsoft is out. I'd also not call DNS
Microsoft's strong suit even if you have it arround. (heck, given the state of
NDIS 2-5, I wouldn't call anything network-oriented their strong suite).

Since djbdns splits resolving and authoritative servers into two separate tools
it might be a bit lighter weight than bind if you're running cache/forward only.

However, as long as you're not splitting hairs on the edge of system collapse
due to overload either should work fine.
