If you are just getting started, the best resource to walk you through understanding DNS is the O'Reilly Media DNS & BIND book.  You can purchase online or at many book stores.

Hello There,

 

If you are trying to understand things like, what are the different types of zone?, what are the different types of resource records etc.. in Infoblox, you could go through couple of chapters from the NIOS administrator guide which should be of great help :

 

Configuring DNS Zones  -  This chapter explains about steps to configure a zone (Authoritative/forward/delegation/stub). The way I see it, its extremely helpful/easy to understand the concepts in terms of Infoblox.

 

DNS Resource Records – This chapter would explain about resource records which Infoblox supports as an authoritative DNS server. Note that Infoblox does support some other record types via DDNS updates ~ something which cannot be created directly via GUI – just an FYI.

 

Now if you are trying to learn BIND in general, you may go through book advised & relevant RFC’s from the internet.

 

Best regards,

Mohammed Alman.
