Hey,
I would really recommand:
DNS and BIND - 4th Edition (Covers Bind 9)
ISBN 0-596-00158-4

Covers bind and name resolution in every possbile aspect! A really must
have book!

These own seems to be good (I personnaly don't have it, but it sounds
interesting) and also good addition to the previous mentionned book:
DNS and BIND Cookbook
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0596004109/qid=1039168701/
sr=1-2/ref=sr_1_2/103-3722991-0502249?v=glance&s=books#product-details

Hope this helps
Didier

>From one newbie to another, drop Bind and go with djbdns. I tried both
and
djbdns was 10* easyer to use and install. In two days I had DNS
resolution
working. Much easier tutorials to follow with clear examples. And it's
in
ports.
