That depends on the version of BIND.  In BIND 8.2+, use a
controls statement to have one named use a different UNIX
domain socket, and use the -c option to ndc to tell it to
contact that name server on the alternate socket.  Before
BIND 8.2, use the pid-file substatement to direct one
name server to use a different PID file, and tell ndc to use
that file.
