djbdns doesn't do anything magic, and the first good answer still wins; it's just that the
patch everyone else had to apply -- to enable source port randomization, which makes it harder
for an attacker to provide a "good answer" -- was already built-in to djbdns.  Now that
everyone's had to patch, djbdns is just as resistant (or not, see the end of the article) as
everyone else.
