Hi,
I wouldn't say that I have the solution but merely a hint.
This line whould generate a named.conf
for domain in $(egrep ^zone /etc/named.conf | cut -d"\"" -f2 | sort);  
do echo "zone \"$domain\" { type slave; file \"sec.$domain\"; masters  
{ IP_OF_MASTER; }; };"; done

Don't forget to put this at the very top of named.conf
options { directory "/etc/named"; };
zone "." { type hint; file "db.cache"; };

As far as I understand the sec.-files are generated automatically -  
correct me if I'm wrong - once bind is restarted.
