I'm made an effort once for nsd 1.0.2, haven't ported it to nsd1.2, we
did use it to generate the source rpm which is the on the webpage.
(I you do change it/port it, please let us now. We will put it on
the website than)

Anyhow here it is:

NSD is a complete implementation of an authoritative DNS nameserver. 

NSD consists of two programs: the zone compiler 'zonec' 
and the name server 'nsd' itself. The name server works with an 
intermediate database prepared by the zone compiler from standard
zone files. Most of the complexity in preparing answers is dealt
with in zonec, such that the processing nsd has to do per query is 
kept at the absolutely necessary minimum.
