What I've done is take my working BIND configuration and zone files and
make some skeleton files out of them.  A skeleton conf file, and then an
 empty zone file.  That way I can flesh out any new BIND set up in a
just a few minutes.

Even more complicated things like dynamic DNS and split-DNS resolution
don't take too much more to get set up.
