Please consult the list archives before posting. Your question has
been asked and answered already. The simplest way to format the BIND9
man pages is to use groff. [I you don't have this, install it.] Or
else take the groff mandoc macros and use them with whatever version
of nroff is provided. ie
	nroff pathname-of-groff-mandoc-macros pathname-of-man-page
	groff -man pathname-of-man-page
