Recommended value for max-cache-size for cache-only shared hosts..

hmmm.. 75%-85% seems too large because the host runs email application in
addition to cache-and-forward-only BIND (for better local caching). So, I
was wondering if there are any best/proven practice/recommendations for
such shared application hosts ?
The default value is 32MB. We have 8GB RAM. I don't know if its better to
start with 1GB (1/8th of RAM)?
