This should also be a FAQ.  The answer is in the archives, or a quick 
Google search should also find it.

But, to answer the question anyway, look in the "contrib" directory of 
the BIND sources for "queryperf".  This "queryperf" easily allows 
someone to rapidly query a server to identify how many queries the 
server can handle.
