If you're talking about the actual zone files you're serving authoritative
domains from.. they will either be in /var/named and the config file
in /etc/named/named.conf (if NOT running in chroot'd mode), or if in chroot'd
mode (last I checked on Fedora anyway) they end up being
in /var/named/chroot/var/named/ (for the zone files)
and /var/named/chroot/etc/named/ (for the config file). However.. once these
are loaded into RAM, you have to do changes and do a "service named reload"
or "restart" to adopt said changes.
On Ubuntu.. I also see some people run the named chroot in /chroot
And as the others say.. the cache runs completely out of RAM.
More info on running bind on Ubuntu is here:
Let us know if you have any other Qs.
