Main problem with dnsmasq is that it doesn't support DNSSEC (I read
that it supports only forwarding DNSSEC queries). Only named as
caching nameserver could validate DNSSEC queries (point me if I'm not
correct). Many people think that DNSSEC is useless. If I compare plain
DNS and DNSSEC it is something like rsh vs. ssh. I'm interested how
many people think ssh is useless. Use dnsmasq will be good for now but
in the end We have to implement dynamic forwarders into named or
DNSSEC into other server. I've already started thread about this topic
in BIND upstream so I think We will find good compromise and solve
this problem.
