ACL's determine what services you will render to that client.  But I 
don't think you can change an answer based on ACL's.

In other words, you can restrict recursive queries, but you can not give 
answer 1 to question A while using acl's to give answer 2 to question A. 
  This requires views and you separate the clients by 'acl's' inside the 
views clause.

You could use separate named processes with separation by listening to 
different IP address to do the same thing.

Using views, you probably need to understand TSIG to get zone transfers 
straight. I don't think it's hard, but you do need to get your thought 
patterns in order.
