Please excuse the delay of posting the summary for my question.

The original request was:

All people who answered said the Solaris 2.3 builtin named is good
for every day tasks. The have no problems with it. One guy (Sven)
replied that the newest bind from Berkeley has some extended features.
The best way is to do the internal name resolving via NIS/NIS+ and
the external with named/bind.


Thanks to all people who replied:
