Of course BIND can do all of this.  It is the reference implementation
for DNS.

If you have multiple domains sharing a single network, then just
include the different hosts in the same zone

15		IN  PTR
26		IN  PTR
31		IN  PTR

If you have multiple domains on multiple networks, use a separate zone
file for each separately identifiable network:  e.g.,
gets; and gets

I don't quite understand your last, though.  It is almost always the
case [except in the rare instance of stealth primaries] that a
"primary" or "master" DNS server is one of the DNS servers for the
computers in its domain.

Fair 'nuff?
