 Alternative Nameservers

Unix Review takes a look at alternative nameservers.

"PowerDNS is an authoritative-only nameserver. This means that it will answer queries about zones that it is responsible for, but it won't attempt to find information on another zone/domain. For example, if you set up PowerDNS to handle "yourdomain.com," it won't answer queries for "mydomain.com" or "bobsdomain.com". This means that you don't have to worry about a poorly configured (or maliciously configured) server polluting your nameserver's cache."
