I'm doing something similar with static zones on recent versions of Bind.

What specific error(s) are you getting?

I would also suggest you take a look at Response Policy Zone, as I think 
it would be more efficient (less memory and faster) than loading 
potentially thousands of zones almost empty zones.

As a bonus, you could dynamically add / update / remove records from the 
RPZ zone without needing to restart Bind.
