djbdns is highly recommended - very easy to setup if you already
understand the concept of zone files with named (although the syntax of
djbdns 'data' files is different).

djbdns is nice in that it separates the various tasks that named does
into distinct modules - one for udp auth nameserver queries (tinydns), another for
tcp (axfrdns), another for caching name server (dnscache).

The best place to read is here:

note that djbdns is in the ports under /usr/ports/net/djbdns iirc.
