Exposing Windows boxes to the internet isn't a smart thing to do.  
Running name servers on said boxes is even less smart. And if someone  
*really* has to do that AND requires 2 instances of the name server  
process (or whatever Windows calls a running program), they should  
choose software which is capable of doing that. Whether that software  
is (or isn't) BIND is beside the point.
