I believe your first question can be handled using "allow-transfer" as

zone "" in {
        type master;
        file "";
        allow-transfer {; };

This prohibits zone transfers to a specific machine.  Although I may not be
reading your question correctly.

I am very interested in finding out how to prohibit the following from

Mar 12 16:24:50 atlantis named[345]: unapproved update from
[].3927 for

Is there a way to block this "unapproved update" by the IP address (it is
always the same address)?
