i doubt it.  i, completely coincidentally, heard about binfo five days

   binfo.c   =  Bind Version Checker
   'binfo' is a quick little script to pull back the version
   of named running on a remote nameserver. This is handy
   comparing it to a list of known vulnerable versions of 
   named/bind. Previous to this, it took a few commands to
   extract out the version.

it also tries to determine if the given server supports iquery.
