Actually: we are in a similar situation. We're currently running bind9, 
and were interested in to switching to NSD for the authorative dns 
services, but it seems that you have to compile newer releases (with 
security fixes etc) yourself, or there is a repo somewhere we're missing?

We're on debian 10. It recommended to simply install the NSD that debian 
comes with, and rely on debian for the security fixes?
