Use @ on the SOA for the zone origin itself, and make all the names
relative.  Then the zone file has nothing in particular to one domain.
Then have named.conf point each domain to do this with to that zone
file.  I cross a number com/net/org domain triplets that way.  I also
do this for the DNS server used by my web proxy for ad banner domains
to make them all point to a dummy web server that delivers an empty
GIF for any URL.
