    Buy the books "Power DNS and Bind" and "DNS and BIND".

    I prefer the first, the second is the usual canonical reference.

    These are must have books for anyone working professionally with DNS.

    There is no substitute for paper. Anyone ever notice how highlighter pens don't work too well on screens?
