If your nameserver grows to fill all your available memory your
only option is to buy more memory.

( well, you -could_ get away with some versions of bind, but
why should you ? Everything named saves in core is useful data
that is stored in cache )

See it like this, you cannot spend a single hour tuning
your named for less money then a proper amount of memory costs)
