There are many analyses on the web comparing bind and unbound, here are 3:
For us though the particular reasons are:
- License change would require us to copy the software and reapply patches.
- We don't have other MPL software in base; this would mean another license.
- Fewer security issues
- Smaller memory footprint for most people, easier to administer.
- New resolver API's (asynchronous etc)
- Modular, simpler, smaller, better auditable
- BSD licensed
And some negatives:
- Crypto is integrated, not optional (although we can fix that)
- Bind libraries are still used by dhcpd
- Needs additional components nsd, openDNSSEC, ldns to match bind's
