Add an allow-update substatement to the zone statements of the
zones you want to allow updates to, permitting updates from the
address of the Windows 2000 box.  For example:

zone "foo.example" {
    type master;
    file "db.foo.example";

You only need to do this on the primary master name servers
for the zone.

Then make sure the zones' SOA records have the primary master
name server's domain name in their MNAME fields.

Finally, consider upgrading to a newer version of BIND:
