BIND (Name Server & Resolver)

Hi, i'm looking information about how BIND (Name Server & Resolver) works... And how Server/Client communicates...
I found a lot of information of what BIND is and how to configure it, but nothing about how it works, does anybody know where i can found something useful??
I don't need code, just the ideas...

thank you very much!!!

Are you asking more on a fundamental level? That would be just how DNS works, nothing special about BIND in the client/server part.

Cricket Liu has a book that has some first chapters that talk about the basics of DNS.

Does that help?
