	Few small points:

1) Bind 8 is substantially faster than bind 9, is speed a
  consideration in your deployment?  If so, avoid bind 9 (though I'd
  expect the ISC folks to address this eventually).
2) I have never used MaraDNS, but according to the site it's still
  under heavy development and is missing many features (AXFR & tcp
  dns)	<http://www.maradns.org/ROADMAP>;
3) Of all of the code I've read/seen/patched/tweaked, I personally put
  djb's stuff pretty far up there because it is easy to read, etc.
  The flip side of it being, I haven't had to do much to djb's stuff
  because it hasn't given me _any_ problems, so this shouldn't be an
  issue for 99.99% of people.  DJB's also has a great track record for
  code stability, security, and performance.
4) As for the djbdns license, he doesn't really have one:
