"In our scenario, we need each master and slave server(s) as both “authoritative” and “caching”. So it is very important to understand that how to achieve these with djbdns. Unlike bind, djbdns uses individual IP for each kind of dns service. By default each system is ready with 2 IP's => one host-IP and other is loopback-IP. So any system on LAN should hit caching dns, hence the host-IP for caching-dns. And we will run authoritative on loopback-IP, and later bind that to caching-dns, hence LAN hosts can query authoritative host records also."
