As Stephen Smoogen pointed out to me recently, you should be aware  
that doing this puts the responsibility entirely on you to maintain  
your BIND version. If you use the stock CentOS (actually Red Hat)  
version of BIND, "yum update" will keep you up-to-date with the  
latest bug fixes as implemented by Red Hat.

Note that I'm not advocating either path, just pointing out the issue.
