Newer versions of BIND have some functionality for handling just such
an instance. From the BIND documentation:
$GENERATE 1-2 0 NS SERVER$.EXAMPLE.
$GENERATE 1-127 $ CNAME $.0
is equivalent to
0.0.0.192.IN-ADDR.ARPA NS SERVER1.EXAMPLE.
0.0.0.192.IN-ADDR.ARPA NS SERVER2.EXAMPLE.
126.96.36.199.IN-ADDR.ARPA CNAME 188.8.131.52.192.IN-ADDR.ARPA
184.108.40.206.IN-ADDR.ARPA CNAME 220.127.116.11.192.IN-ADDR.ARPA
127.0.0.192.IN-ADDR.ARPA CNAME 127.0.0.0.192.IN-ADDR.ARPA
