No, this won't work with BIND. It just doesn't work this way. If you try it, you will have three completely different and unrelated versions of the same zone. There's no way for a slave to try to integrate the data, either.

Create a single hidden master name server. Configure al three DHCP servers to update it. Or create three separate zones, one per DHCP server.
