Add the following lines to /etc/named.conf, (edit ip's, domain, dir)

options {
directory "/var/named";
check-names response warn;
notify yes;

zone "" {
type master;
file "db.subdomain";

# For secondary name server setup, add this line also...

zone "" {
type slave;
masters { ip.address.of.master(s); };
