FWIW,

[monster:~]% strings $(which named) | egrep 'zone .* chaos '
        zone "version.bind" chaos {
        zone "hostname.bind" chaos {
        zone "authors.bind" chaos {
        zone "id.server" chaos {
[monster:~]% 

Of those, authors is a bit verdantly ovine but the others have operational utility (id.server is implemented in other software, like NSD, to provide the same kind of functionality as version.bind).
