My feeling from reading postings on this list for a number of years
is that most people who are currently using BIND will stick with BIND.
In general, there is a mistrust of MS code.  There were
interoperability problems with BIND and MS W2k DNS a few years ago, but
I have experienced no major problems since August 2002, when MS
resolved my last major problem.  I use MS W2k+3 DNS mainly for the
AD-related zones, where I want the AD-integrated security of the DDNS.
I do have one forward zone and its five reverse zones on the MS DNS
Server, all under the control of a MS DHCP Server.
