PlusNet Security - DNS Poisoning

Just read this article in New Scientist http://www.newscientist.com/article.ns?id=mg18624966.200
Can I ask if PlusNet already use BIND9 or intend to switch to it or indeed have a better system

PlusNet Security - DNS Poisoning

PlusNet upgraded their DNS servers to bind v9 last year (as a result of other security issues at the time and to improve reliability) and all 4 caching nameservers are using it as far as I know.
