how to stop and remove BIND 9.9.7-P3 on Mac OS X High Sierra 10.13.6?

I am required by the school’s IT to replace BIND 9.9.7-P3 with 9.16.13.  

I identified that indeed the version running is 9.9.7-P3 by typing “named -v”.

I am totally new to BIND and tried to follow the directions given at <>.

I tried to stop BIND from running, by typing: 

"sudo service org.isc.named stop"

but it appears that “service” must be replaced by something else because I get:

~$ sudo service org.isc.named stop
sudo: service: command not found

What should “service” be? 

Is there another command I should issue to stop BIND?

Thank you,
