SRV Records with DNSMasq

There's a write-up of this with DNSMasq on my blog:

http://andrew.mcmillan.net.nz/blog/srv_records_with_dnsmasq

We need to transfer some of that content here, and also provide some more recipes for Bind & other DNS servers as well...

SRV Records with Bind

There's a good summary here, though it kind of expects you already know a bit about Bind:

For a carddav the SRV record would look something like:

_carddavs._tcp.example.com. SRV 10 5 8443 carddav.example.com.

For a https CardDAV service with priority 10, weight 5 on port 8443 of carddav.example.com.
