I think the main requirement here is to add and remove zones on the  
fly without restarting, something that is possible with other servers.  
I think for people who are doing a lot of end customer DNS hosting and  
usually have thousands or millions of small zones this is a must have  
before they even can consider NSD. If you have say e.g 3600 zone  
additions per day that is one hour downtime even if it just takes one  
second per restart/reload.

So long
