Just a question, and I'm not trying to cast doubt on your plan; I'm curious why using BIND for this purpose instead of a proxy, which is
a more typical application as I understand it?


I was trying to do something similar. I didn't research too hard, but figured the only way to use Bind would be to make my server authoritative for all those domains, which meant a huge config file and potential overhead, as well as possibly breaking access to desirable servers in the domains.

So hosts seemed easier, but apparently Bind never looks at hosts.  I did find 
that Squid (which I already had installed and in limited use) has its own DNS 
resolver, and it does look at hosts first before going to the nameserver.

Then I found this site:  http://everythingisnt.com/hosts.html and put their 
list in hosts, and now client PCs get a squid error in place of ad junk.  Works 
ok for me ;)
