Your cache will populate itself automatically, assuming you have your
hints file configured correctly. A slave zone will populate
automatically as long as you are able to regularly perform zone
transfers from the master(s). A master file will only populate
"automatically" if you have something external to BIND updating the
database, either by adding/changing/deleting entries to the zone file
from which the zone loads (or whatever backend named loads the zone
from), or via Dynamic Update while BIND is running, or some combination
of the two.
