i have been experimenting w/ bind9 regarding ddns. 
i noticed a couple of things regarding performance.
first, bind9's performance is very similar to bind8.
i would think that the multithreading capability of bind9
would help. i ran my tests on both a uni-cpu sparc-u5 
(333 mhz) and a dual-cpu e250 (400 mhz each). i actually 
saw performance decreased on the dual-cpu e250. i would 
expect performance to increase. but, then ddns is io bound 
due to the journeling. 

is multithreading and multiprocessor support enabled for
bind9 b1 ???
