Maybe someday, but not at the moment. I've been told by the folks at ISC 
that in it's current form, threading is a pessimization on all versions of 
BIND 9 prior to the 9.4 code that they have in CVS (which has not been 
generally released). Thus, I would not expect performance of BIND 9 with 
threads to be an accurate reflection of the effectiveness of the library.
