"Bind 9.2.2rc1 was just imported into -current. This is a major upgrade from the Bind 4.9.* that was previously there. Now it is possible to use OpenBSD for all the new bind features such as dynamic DNS.Jakob, who appears to be leading the import effort, has spent some time auditing BIND 9.2, and has reportedly fixed many errors (many of which he appears to be checking in right now). Those of you who need to use OpenBSD as a DNS server will probably want to wait a bit before this import settles down, builds and runs perfectly, and has been audited a bit more. However, it will add many nice shiny features, including a partial DNSSEC implementation, full IPv6 support, a threaded architecture, and a lightweight resolver for caching only operations.
