What is the easiest way to setup a DNS server on a Leopard machine? Does Leopard come with a DNS server? My Leopard machine's virtual name is abc.local. I want to add this to the DNS server.

note that the .local is provided by Apple's mDNS/Zeroconf implementation called Bonjour. other machines on your network that run Bonjour or Avahi can resolve abc.local directly. – quack quixote Apr 11 '10 at 21:07

Leopard comes with the famous BIND package. It is actually the most popular DNS implementation on the internet. You can configure the files yourself or optionally use the GUI tool, DNS Enabler, as pointed out by lajuette.
