DNS is pretty lightweight stuff, so it doesn't really matter. For instance, you could run BIND on an old Pentium Pro 100 and not break a sweat.
Also, if you're concerned about hardware costs, you can run Solaris on x86 hardware too.
My recommendation for a Linux Distro that is complete, lightweight, easy to learn/administer, and extremely stable is Slackware Linux. I would definately pick Slackware for a server over that of any Redhat or other RPM based distro like CentOS or Fedora.
