BIND uses a master config file and zone (database) files.  Your 
imaginary "file that holds all
the virtual hosts (aliases)" needs to be implemented using the BIND 
files.  You will need, for each 2nd level domain, a zone statement in 
the master config file and a zone file.

The database files can be greatly simplified using $INCLUDE directive 
and shared zone files, esp useful for virtual hosting.

Get the book: DNS & BIND, from O'Reilly. plus there are tons of 
resources on Internet.
