You've ben around long enough that I think you could pick up
everything you need to know from the book DNS & BIND.
The current version is the 5th edition. I've only got the 4th edition,
but that was pretty good. I set up the dns server at SAC in Feb 2004
and it's still running with only a few minor configuration file changes.
It uses a split horizon (different responses for internal and external
hosts) system, so its more than the trivial setup.
The biggest change to DNS has been quite recent in that they are adding
support for non-ascii domain names. That is basically a non-issue for
servers here in the US unless you are going to set up domain names with
Chinese or similar characters.
Just ask your questions here and I'm sure they'll get answered.
