I'd say that's a great place to start. How you use BIND kinda depends
on your goals, from my experience. Do note that the page you cite does
not describe setting up a master server for "serving" authoritative DNS
info to the Internet at large; it does state that you should read the
previous page for more information (where, at the very least, the subject
is given a more complete overview, and some fairly good detail).
One real important detail, from my experience: when setting those
TTL numbers in zone files, make Real Sure(tm) you don't put in
any extra digits. :-)
