If you are getting a million queries a day, or are hosting a thousand
domains you need BIND.  If your load is less than this NT DNS is fine.  I
only have about 90 zones, and get far less than a million queries a day.  I
moved from BIND on Linux,  to BIND on NT, to MS DNS on NT.  

If you are on an NT LAN and moving to W2K with Active Directory, you may be
a lot better off with NT DNS.

Nooooo, problem
