bind9-default.md5sum file

Well, offhand, I'd say it's an MD5 sum of a package named "bind9- 
default". I don't have that file on my Ubuntu systems.

Presumably, Debian's BIND 9.5.0-P2 package (which is a Debian-specific  
package, not directly corresponding to any ISC release) has been  
updated to version 5.1. Thus, an MD5 sum related to this package would  
also be likely change. You can probably accept it as-is.

Personally, I've found the Debian builds of BIND (also found on  
Ubuntu) to be less than fully reliable. The same is true of the Red  
Hat builds of BIND. I've run into several customer servers running one  
or the other of these on which named was crashing frequently; just  
rebuilding from the stock source has fixed it every time.
