Time to upgrade then: 9.7 is EOL since a few days ... ;-) [1]

I think you'll find people here use all sorts of nameserver brands. ISC
BIND is one of them, but e.g. NLnetLabs NSD and Unbound are both very
popular authoritative and recursive servers respectively, as are
PowerDNS Authoritative and Recursor versions. There's plenty of stuff to
go around. 

Oh, and not to forget: djbdns is still in use in some places ...
