Well now that's *interesting*. I tossed a note up to ISC's bind-users
mailing list to see what's up with that -- I have lots of older books
here that reference it as Daemon, and my guess is that there's a typo on
their page -- but we'll see. Maybe some marketing wonk at ISC/Nominum
got ahold of the web page and changed it. ;-)
I'll let ya know what folks say over there...
