Do you mean the zone configuration in named.conf, or the zonefiles?

BIND9 has a doc/misc/migration document which gives plenty of good advice
on configuration changes from BIND8 to BIND9.

In general, what I'd recommend is:

1) Read that migration document
2) Test your existing named.conf + zonefiles by either loading them into
BIND9 directly, or by using the named-checkconf / named-checkzone commands
from BIND9.
3) Watch your logs
