Hi -

I don't know if it's been mentioned, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

I recently converted ~120k domains in DNS from BIND to MyDNS, and it's 
proving to work quite well.  I'm extremely happy with it.  Even moreso, 
implementing a secondary is as easy as MySQL replication.  It's fast, 
has proven to be stable, and since it's MySQL-based, we are easily able 
to integrate it with our other systems.

Hope that helps
