Short Answer: Yes. I'm doing it
Longer Answer: I have a WRT54GS V2 w/ a 512 MB SD card. I run the Optware BIND 9 packages (among others). I don't know if the 54G has enough ram to run BIND and I don't think that swap to jffs or SD is what I would call an optimum solution. There may be other DNS servers that will do secondary service, but I haven't explored them as my primary servers all run BIND.
So, it is possible, but your mileage may vary.
As an aside, the WRT54GS V2 w/ an SD card makes a pretty nice low power server. I run an e-mail server, DNS server, Lighttpd web server, ntp server on it and it doesn't break out a sweat (but I don't run it as a router or access point 'tho, just a small low power server for a couple of low traffic domains that I have). The power consumption is pretty low with the radio disabled.
