Unbound ( ) just does validating, recursive, and 
caching DNS. If you ever end up needing an authoritative server you can 
pair it with NSD ( ). They are 
both from the same company.

There is also MaraDNS, it promotes itself as being very secure, small, 
and easy to configure ( ).

I personally like MaraDNS, you can read the advocacy document which 
compares various DNS servers.
