Currently, symbiosis generates tinydns-data records and, when within bytemark, uploads them to upload.ns.bytemark.co.uk for DNS to be served. This works fine for us, but is less useful for domains that aren't Bytemark DNS, or machines running symbiosis outside of Bytemark's network.

It should be possible to set a flag that signals "run an authoritative nameserver with my DNS data". This could just be tinydns, or alternatively, we could use powerdns with the tinydns-data backend.

The latter would allow the VM to distribute its records to other nameservers (as a master, via AXFR) for redundancy; and we could also enable DNSSEC functionality this way, by way of pdnssec integration.
