Bind9 on VMWare

We chose to do BIND on physical for our externally authoritative servers.  

We use Windows DNS for internal.   

One thing you should do if you're doing virtual is be sure you don't have your guests running on the same node of a cluster.   If that node fails your DNS is going down.   Ideally if you have multiple VMWare clusters you'd put your guests on separate clusters.
