Yes, but that's only because libbind _is_ the BIND8 resolver in both
As I'm sure you already know (but others may not) there is an entirely
new and different (and quite experimental) resolver API in BIND9. From
- A BIND 8 compatible stub resolver library is now
included in lib/bind.
This distribution also includes a new lightweight stub
resolver library and associated resolver daemon that fully
support forward and reverse lookups of both IPv4 and IPv6
addresses. This library is considered experimental and
is not a complete replacement for the BIND 8 resolver library.
Applications that use the BIND 8 res_* functions to perform
DNS lookups or dynamic updates still need to be linked against
the BIND 8 libraries. For DNS lookups, they can also use the
new "getrrsetbyname()" API.
