unless you need dnssec or ipv6 support that isnt already available for djbdns, i'd highly suggest djbdns.

i find djbdns to be extremely easy to work with; it's designed to be scripting friendly. in addition, the project can even be called 'finished', which is rare with an internet-exposed application.

I like using my own flavor of djbdns which is at don't let the name fool you, it's for much more than just an ISP.
