It depends. If the files comply with RFC1035 and RFC2308, there will
be no problem loading them on a BIND9 server. Many people have been
caught out by zone file errors that BIND8 tolerated. You can check the
zone files for syntax errors with named-checkzone which is shipped
with BIND9.

See doc/misc/migration in the BIND9 distribution.
