OK. I found it. Tru wrote this, in a thread yesterday:

I'm wondering if caching-nameserver will do the Caching DNS for me, if
I use CentOS 3.x or 4.x.   Also need the box to do Routing and
Masquerading.  Would that be done by IPTables?  Or, if I shoud use
dnscache, which is apparently much more secure than BIND, or something
else, that is easier for a newbie to get configured properly. TIA!
