Compiling BIND9 on CentOS 7

Thank you for your response. Basically what I am trying to do is migrate
the BIND server from a Centos 5.11 machine to a CentOS 7.2 machine.  The
BIND on CentOS 5.11 was compiled manually by source and its named.conf file
looks very different than what CentOS/Red Hat provides in the RPM package
named.conf file. Any tips on how I should go about migrating successfully
from the 5.11 machine to the 7.2 machine?

As for the named.service unit file that Reindl provided, will I need to
call upon any RNDC services? I saw that in the named.service file that
comes with the RPM/YUM package contains a call to some RNDC service which
calls up some script.. I am not too sure of what the
names of the files are.

Thanks for all of your help!
