RonRon- DNS is a vastly complicated topic, but I'd recommend grabbing yourself a copy of this[0a] and reading chapter 16 in its entirety, as well as the DNS section in the TCP/IP Guide[0b] (as published by NoStarch). Those should give you a good overview of DNS as a whole. There are also plenty of RFCs detailing exactly how DNS works, but they aren't for the faint of heart. Once you understand the purpose and mechanics of DNS, at the very least in a general sense, you should understand what BIND does. If you're looking for the shortcut, look for references to "authoritative nameservers" and/or "authoritative nameserver software" (which is what BIND is). If you're looking to combine very simple authoritative DNS (or record replacement) in addition to recursive DNS resolution AND a DHCP server, I'd recommend looking into DNSMasq as it does all these bundled into a small footprint package.
