Hey, Bill.

As many say, you own your network, and are free to run it as you see
fit.  :)  That said, please be aware that if you leave your name
servers open to recursive query requests from any source, you WILL
unwittingly help to amplify these attacks.  It's the same as ICMP
directed broadcast and the like.

I don't like it.  You don't like it.  The miscreants love it.  It's
always a balancing act.
