Default Why bind9 on 8.04 server?

Just installed 8.04-1 server. Doing updates it says:

The following packages have been kept back:
bind9-host dnsutils libbind9-30 libisccfg30

To my knowledge I don't want bind running on this machine. I will be using
dnsmasq to be a simple caching dns and dhcp server for the Windows machines on
the backside of this box.

Why do I have bind9-host or, alternatively, why is it held back?

Can I just uninstall it?

Thanks,
Michael

bind9-host is only the host command from bind9. Not the entire bind9.

The reason why packages are held back is because they depend on a new package.
Doing an apt-get upgrade won't give you any new packages. Instead you can try
an apt-get dist-upgrade

Well, even with dist-upgrade you can get held back packages. That's in
situations when the necessary new packages yet has to be moved into the
repository.
