AFAIK, BIND 9 was a reimplementation, written from from scratch, from the
ground up with a particular eye on not having things like buffer overflows
and etc... in the code.

I think there has been one or two advisories, but they were minor things
and not something that would get one r00ted.  :)  Let's hope the sendmail
rewrite has as good or better luck
