FC5 comes with Bind 9 which supports views. Webmin's Bind8 module
supports Bind 9 and views. O'Reilly makes a great book for Bind 
and it covers views.

Use these resources and you may figure out what you need to do.

Complex DNS configurations require some understanding of how 
DNS works.

There may not be a simple formula to do what you want, but using 
views is may what you want.

If all you need to do is provide authoritative responses for 
multiple domains you can do that within the default config.

If you want to only allow responses for authoritative zones 
try some of the info at this link:
