Default Best way to check if freebsd server is running a nameserver service/daemon

Hi everyone,

I recently was assigned a project that requires me to fix up a FreeBSD webserver. I'm new to FreeBSD in general.

One of the issues with the webserver is a very broad DNS issue.

The domains that the client owns all point back to the webserver for their nameserver. As far as I can tell, it isn't running one, but I'm not 100% sure on this. To complicate matters worse, the admin that came before me had no clue what he was doing, so even if the server is running a nameserver... it cannot be trusted.

What's the best way for me figure out if the server is in fact running a nameserver daemon? I have root access to the server via SSH.

Thanks for all of your help.
