Besides BIND, NSD, Yadifa and Knot, you might find some Nominum servers in use by TLDs. You will also see that some TLDs use more than one name server:

host -c CH -t txt version.bind a.dns.br
version.bind descriptive text "NSD 3.2.17"

host -c CH -t txt version.bind c.dns.br
version.bind descriptive text "9.9.6"
