Well, you could start here:
and here: 
They're Solaris 8, but a good start none-the-less.

This is for real hardening (as in firewall) but it will also help you
get where you want to go:

I would also suggest googling for hardening BIND servers and possibly
going to some hacker sites like packetstorm to see what
vulnerabilities are out there for the version of BIND you are
installing. That way you can know what you are up agains.

Just my $.02
