Boot.zones is not a part of BIND in its default configuration. I did 
some Googling and it appears to be a Debian-specific thing. You might 
want to ask a Debian-oriented group whether there's an auto-update 
mechanism. BIND itself provides no mechanism for the automatic creation 
of zone definitions on slave servers.
