    Does the cPanel DNS Only solution require a licence to run it on a given server at all?

    The cPanel DNS only product does not require purchasing a license for it.

    Another question...
    Can you run other services on the DNS only machine at all? I was thinking merely of using it as a backup option for clients and perhaps a "service announcement" page should a node go down on me.

    You could run other services on it such as placing backups there for remote FTP from an cPanel machine or placing announcements on it for some webpage. Most people try to avoid too much extra activity on the machine to ensure it doesn't become latent, but it's up to you what you place onto the machine.
