I assume this subdomain is not being hosted on the same servers as (if it is, you just put the name "whatever" in the 
zone file).

In the zone file for, add NS records that delegate to the 
nameservers for the subdomain:

whatever IN NS
         IN NS

On those servers, add zones for them in the named.conf files:

zone "" {
  type [ master | slave ];
  file "";
