Ok, then I'll ask the obvious...

For those who are, or have been network ops within an Internet Service 
Provider environment, what DNS server do you recommend for reliability, 
functionality, and most importantly, ease of use so the helpdesk can 
make slight changes to client domains when required (hopefully without 
having to su to root).

The latter point is why I went from BIND to TinyDNS (VegaDNS) in the 
first place, but it's seriously lacking with IPv6 support.
