If you want to define "most popular" as what the root servers use then
maybe NSD:
$ cat root-server-types
# what software are the root servers running?
grep -o . <<< "abcdefghijklm" | while read X ; do
  printf "%s\t" ${X}.root-servers.net.
  printf "%s\n" "$(dig -c ch -t txt version.bind
@${X}.root-servers.net. +short)"

If you want to define "most popular" as DNS servers accessible on the
Internet, I'd kind of like to know too.  Maybe bind, maybe not.. I
