In my point of view you do not understand what's the difference between 
caching proxy and caching DNS. 
But main difference is that caching proxy is used to cache web requests 
and responses (http, https, ftp), while DNS cache is used to chache DNS 
queries and responses (when you ping www.dir.bg and you recieve this is request "what's the address of www.dir.bg and 
response is "address is").

What are you trying to achieve?

My question is what's the difference between Squid DNS caching and BIND
and other programs that cache DNS requests?
