i doubt for several reasons

yum update bind\* would work but only in theory

the most recent version for the upcoming CentOS 6.7 is 
9.8.2-0.37.rc1.el6_7.1 (yesterday from the cr repos)

but you *never ever* should only update specific packages on a 
RHEL/CentOS system because that is *not supported and tested* at all

the OP's question in fact is how to get a newer bind version and the 
anser is "you don't until you compile it yourself and risk troubles with 
other dependencies, hence you decided to use a LTS distribution and 
should refrain to work outside the package manager"
