In BIND 8.2.x the only file that relates to what you're talking about 
is your reverse zone file. It's the file that maps the ip's back to 
specific A record host names. As far as virtual hosting I don't believe 
you can have a file like this for virtual use. After all, virtual hosts 
don't really have their own ip address, they map back to another 
machines A record ip address. Which, in turn, that ip address must 
reverse lookup to it's respective host as defined by that A record. I 
think this stuff is in a BIND RFC somewhere, but I'm sure. I also may 
be way off here, but this has been my understanding since I can
