I am getting the following informational messages on starting named after installing bind 9.8.1-P1 on a set of resolvers:

18-Nov-2011 03:35:14.872 database: info: adb: grow_entries to 1531 starting
18-Nov-2011 03:35:14.874 database: info: adb: grow_entries finished


The ADB hash table is a potential resource bottleneck - so it is being dynamically re-sized according to usage levels.  The change that introduces this new behavior was released in BIND 9.8.0:

2993.    [func]        Dynamically grow adb hash tables. [RT #21186]
