All I had to change was adding a TTL field at the top of each hosts
file. If you already have these, it should be seamless. BIND 8 kept
complaining that I didn't have TTL fields, but ran anyway (and I was
lazy) - apparently, BIND 9 is more picky.

The following did the trick for me:

$TTL 600
<start SOA record ...>
