	I'm not sure queryperf is meant to be tested in this fashion - you
	have too many factors interacting for one thing, and we don't really
	know the configuration of each of the servers (for example, have you
	turned on early prefetch on about to expire records on unbound, what's
	the query size, what data set are you querying against - live or synthetic
	data, etc..)

	Testing one tool at a time, on a known dataset would be the way to
	go for recursion (unbound, bind) and authoritative (bind, nsd).
