I have a couple of Fedora Core 4 guests (3 GB disk, 256 MB RAM, 512 MB swap) 
on Fedora Core 4 dom0 + Xen 3.0.4 running bind 9.3.1 with about 500 zones 

I'm not sure what you mean exactly with slow, but assuming you mean slow 
responses to DNS queries, I don't have problems with them. Though, I don't 
have concrete info about bind performance and all that stuff, since these 
aren't our primary DNS servers but only serve zones of some specific domains.
