Dan Bernstein himself is kind enough to provide a page listing lots of
useful features that BIND supports that djbdns does not and probably never
(At the very end, after the paranoid ranting.)
TSIG is important for administrators who do not want clear-text zone
transfers, for instance.
Without TCP or EDNS0, you cannot have a DNS response bigger than 512
bytes. This becomes more important in a IPv6 world.
Speaking of IPv6, it looks like djbdns won't actually listen on an IPv6
FWIW, ISC is putting together a road-map for the next major version of
BIND now (after 9.5... 9.4 is in alpha, and improves performance in a
number of ways. Is mostly code complete 9.5 will support gss-tsig,
allowing some limited interoperability with Microsoft's Kerberos
implementation, and much better server statistics.) One of the things I
think we'll see in that version is much easier administration.
