 * On Arch bind-tools has no dependency on bind, so it should be 

 * Note that bind-tools 9.13 has some open bugs relating to IPv6 address 
   parsing in resolv.conf, so you might want to use bind-tools 9.11 

 * If you need to deploy a bind service in a specific version, you may 
   want to consider using a containerized deployment to minimize
   interference with the base system and maintenance burden as you 
   probably want to stay on the 9.11.x release train for a longer period 
   of time. Docker, LXC, LXD (only via AUR) would all work.
