Unbound ( http://www.unbound.net/ ) just does validating, recursive, and
caching DNS. If you ever end up needing an authoritative server you can
pair it with NSD ( http://www.nlnetlabs.nl/projects/nsd/ ). They are
both from the same company.
There is also MaraDNS, it promotes itself as being very secure, small,
and easy to configure ( http://www.maradns.org/ ).
I personally like MaraDNS, you can read the advocacy document which
compares various DNS servers. http://www.maradns.org/advocacy.html
