There is currently no patched working version of BIND available for the Windows platform from my own tests and many others who have responded to me. 9.4.2-P1, 9.5.0-P1 and the 9.5.1 betas all seem to have issues with stability or memory utilization that makes them unstable. 9.4.2 is perfectly stable in our environment. We're contemplating switching to FreeBSD for the OS on our recursive name servers.
