Perhaps the easiest way to do this is to edit the zone files. For bind9
'rndc stop' flushed all the journals with dynamic updates to the
zonefile. Then edit the zone file(s) and start bind up again.

There are probably ways to do this dynamically, but they require a lot
more steps than this.

Might be worth looking through the bind9-users mail archives?
