The usual reason to override it is because you want a BIND 8 nameserver to
be compatible with a firewall that was configured for BIND 4, which always
uses port 53 as the source. But if you don't have that constraint, just
leave it alone and let BIND act just like any other UDP client, selecting
an unused port arbitrarily.
