The first version of BIND to include native DLZ support is 9.4.0 
which is still in beta. A pre-built package for Win32 can be found on 
ISC's Web site:

More information can be found here:

I don't know personally how or if DLZ support works on Win32 or if 
there are any differences than the versions running on *nix... so 
you'd probably want to do some extensive testing and perhaps at least 
wait for the release version before using it in production. I'm sure 
ISC would appreciate any testing on the current beta though.
