Super interesting dialogue following this issue. Nice to see how this is 
picked up by the NSD team.

The problem discussed in this thread makes me feel that the debian NSD 
package may not receive as much attention as it perhaps should...?

What is consensus here: simpy "apt install nsd" or look into compiling 
from source? (like for example is recommended in the case of samba ADDC)
