If you want a single nameserver that all your machines can query, run
bind.  If you just want something for the local machines, there are
lighter weight alternatives.  That being said, bind9 run on a low stress
network like a home LAN is not particularly resource intensive (my
recursive forwarder for my home LAN is a 700 MHz via machine).
