Exactly the same as every other zone.  ;-)

In "named.conf":
zone ""	IN {
	type master;
	file "zone.stasinski";

In "zone.stasinski":
$TTL		1w
@		SOA (
			... )
		NS	# e.g.
		MX	your.mail.server.
daniel		A	999.999.999.1
igor		A	999.999.999.2
router		A	999.999.999.254
network		A	999.999.999.0
broadcast	A	999.999.999.255

And the reverse-DNS zones the same way you normally would, as well.
