The Debian/Ubuntu default install of bind is pretty sane. I imagine the
install with other distributions is equally sane. Bind is typically
configured to drop root privileges after startup, and run in a chroot.
If these options are not the default, it won't be hard configure.

Unlike the Sendmail configuration files the Bind files are easy. The
only tricky part is remembering all of the "{}; characters. The Bind
configuration files are similar in format to the dhcpd files.
