For completeness: there is the BIND 9 Administrator Reference Manual,
known as the ARM, usually supplied under /usr/share/doc/.
And what many consider to be the standard reference, Liu and Albitz's
"DNS and BIND" published by O'Reilly. I believe it's up to the
5th edition now; an earlier edition used to be provided online.
If you're serious about learning DNS you ought to consider this book.
