My understanding is that this will work with BINDv9 since the cache
synthesizes all responses returned to the requestor and a bad response
wouldn't be synthesized.  BINDv8 and BINDv4 will sometimes (in an attempt to
be faster) simply pass the authoritative response on to the requestor (which
is the bad thing).  Don't have a clue about what dnscache or MS DNS would
