    It's pretty easy, just add allow-update or update-policy to the zone config block in named.conf

    An example from my named.conf
    [root@broken ~]# tail /etc/named.conf
    zone "" IN {
         type master;
         file "dynamic/";
         update-policy local;
         auto-dnssec maintain;
         key-directory "dynamic/";
