BIND works great for us. Internally we use dynamic DNS. The interface
to add/remove entries is easy to learn, and ISC DHCPd writes dynamic
DNS, which keeps all our end-user addresses up to date.
Externally we modify the flatfiles.
In both cases, we use BINDs internal AXFR to keep master and slave
servers in sync (no rsync, no outages/dropped requests). When we
update a flatfile on the external server, we use rndc (also a part if
BIND by default) to reload that single zone without any outages or
dropped requests ("rndc reload marist.edu").
