setting up dns with DSL

unless you have your own domain and your ISP is delegated to pull secondary
from you for zone transfers but still answer authoritatively for your domain
(on the InterNIC record), i wouldn't bother with it.  just because you have
a fast connection does not mean that you want to fill it with DNS queries
for your domain (assuming that you have one).

i have a 1.0 Mbps SDSL circuit, and my arrangement with my ISP is that they
are listed on my domains as the nameservers to query.  however, in their
named configs, they poll me for zone updates.  this allows me to control the
information, but allows them to answer for it.  why waste bandwidth with
DNS?  spend it on something useful, like online gaming.  :)
