Default PowerDNS or Bind

If you were getting ready to setup a DNS to work with a large multiuser ispConfig 3 network that might scale (wishful thinking) into the thousands would you use Bind or PowerDNS. Not familiar with either on Linux, but I like that PowerDNS uses MySQL and it would be easy to interface some of my exisitng windows based DNS systems over to it to convert them to Linux DNS. I see that Bind does have some Mysql and Web front end tools, but I like that PowerDNS has them all intergrated already.

What does anyone who would had to do it all over again, which would you choose?

Thanks!

Bind because it's the standard, so you can't go wrong.

PowerDNS is very interesting because of its support for different backends for the storage of dns zones but BIND has come a long way. Look a the official site and you see the roadmap is well documented and the development is backed by a good reliable organization.
