I am interested in having a production grade BIND9 implementation on FreeBSD. My hardware is as below

Intel(r) Xeon(r) Processor X5560

I learned from the site that FreeBSD for ia64 is still in TIER2. Can you please advise me on the below.

1.      When it will be moved to TIER1.

2.      If I go ahead with the current release what is the risk?

Please note this implementation would be mission critical.

Thanks in advance.
