Undead Hunter is one of the four paladin class kits with a self-explanatory purpose. Against the undead creatures, they have +3 damage and -3 THAC0 bonus. You can make them even more devestating against the undead by giving them weapons such as Daystar, Mace of Disruption, Harrower, Azuredge and Foebane.

Undead Hunters are immune to status effects of hold and level drain. The only disadvantage is that cannot use the Lay on Hands special ability, but that is a small price to pay for the extra abilities.
