my impression is that generating a fully fledged BIND config within
NixOS is overkill, i.e. there are so many possible options one might
want to set that it's easier to just write the appropriate config file

On my name servers, I set up BIND with a manually created config like

  services.bind = {
    enable = true;
    configFile = "/etc/bind/named.conf";

Take care,
