Well, setting up bind goes a little bit beyond tinkering in general.
I can confirm that full bind 8 and 9 installations work fine. I currently have bind 9 running on my NV+ with views and several zones. Works great.
There was a recent thread in the forums here, too, where dnsmasq setup was covered. See http://www.infrant.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=14356
For me, bind 9 installation was as simple as enabling root SSH in v4, installing the APT add-on, and running "apt-get install bind9". Once done, finish bind9 configuration as you would normally.
