I was under the impression that we didn't want it yet. From doc/3RDPARTY:

Package:        bind/named
Version:        8.3.6
Current Vers:   4.9.11/8.3.6/8.4.1/9.2.2

bind2netbsd script to import into src/dist/bind.
The Makefiles in src/usr.sbin/bind are not handled by the script.
do not try to use libc resolver from src/usr.sbin/bind, it adds
too much constraint between bind and libc, as well as problem with
_res declaration differences.  DNSSEC portion is disabled.
On switching to BIND9: waiting for the release of 9.3.x, as 9.2.x has
some issues (A6 queries for glue, for instance).

Hmm, someone should update that, seeing as we have 8.3.7, not .6.
