HI All,
I'm new to using the Bind  DNS. I'm currently trying to monitor
statistics from our servers.  Can anyone tell me what the maximum values
of the below statistical counters are:-

success	The number of successful queries made to the server or zone. A
successful query is defined as query which returns a NOERROR response
with at least one answer RR.	
referral	The number of queries which resulted in referral
nxrrset	The number of queries which resulted in NOERROR responses with
no data.	
nxdomain	The number of queries which resulted in NXDOMAIN
failure	The number of queries which resulted in a failure response other
than those above.	
recursion	The number of queries which caused the server to perform
recursion in order to find the final answer.	

Thanks in advance
Andy Charles
