There are no advantages I can think of unless you're also running a dns
server for other hosts. Either one should be fine for the name
resolution needs of postfix. Since I'm familiar with bind I tend to just
go with it that whether we need a simple caching dns server or a full
blown multi-view view authoritative dns server. It works pretty well out
of the box on modern releases of unix-like OSes.
