If the version of BIND is 4.9 or later,

$ dig @ns1.blah.com txt chaos version.bind

You could also do the following to see what version of BIND is installed:

rpm -qa | grep -i bind

This assumes that either you, or your RPM-based Linux system (such as Red
Hat, Mandrake and presumably others; possibly Caldera) installed BIND from an
RPM rather than building it from the source in a .tar.gz distribution.
