That should be pretty trivial to template together with Ansible and/or use 
'assemble' to create the final version. Alternatively, look at `rndc addzone'.  

(Also, have you looked at existing roles of which there are several?)

Please no: this is trivial to accomplish with scripting; I think BIND is 
featureful enough as it stands. ;-)
