I took a look at my logfile. There I can find a lot of entries like this:

... /usr/sbin/zoneserver: Log: Root directory changed
... /usr/sbin/zoneserver: Log: Socket opened on TCP port 53
... /usr/sbin/zoneserver: Log: Root privileges dropped
... /usr/sbin/zoneserver: Log: Awaiting data on port 53
... /usr/sbin/zoneserver: Log: Message received, processing

What does it mean that root privileges are dropped?

greetings, Markus
