There is  migration note(s) in the bind-9 distribution kit. Download and
read this.

Most stuff is about rfc-conformance, bind-4 might accept things that is
against standards that bind-9 will complain about. It's no argument=20
against bind-9 , it's an argument for correcting faulty configs.

Why don't you download buikl and start up on a testmachine until you
feel familiar with the software.
