About DNS (BIND) with Database

That looks as though it should work as all bind will do is do a normal
DNS lookup via MyDNS if they ask for one of your own domains.
As to which one is better for secondary, the drawback with bind that I
found is that you have to rewrite it's ascii config file and reload it
to add or remove domains, with MyDNS you can just add or delete entries.
MyDNS does allow AXFR to a bind slave though so either will work, you
may just want to reload your bind slave config every so often to catch
additions and removals of domains.
(I do replication personally as it effectively acts as a free backup of
the SQL database too :)
