Also you could use dump\restore utilites

mount /dev/hdb1 /mnt/hdb1
cd /mnt/hdb1
dump -0uan -f - /boot  | restore -r -f -

You could use dns logining.
some example from one of my servers:

options {
.....
};

logging {
         channel default_log {
                file "/var/log/named.log" size 50000k;
                severity info;
                print-time yes;
                print-category yes;
                print-severity yes;
         };
         channel more_log {
                file "/var/log/named_extend.log" size 20000k;
                severity info;
                print-time yes;
                print-category yes;
                print-severity yes;
         };

         category default { default_log; };
         category xfer-in { default_log; };
         category xfer-out { default_log; };
         category notify { default_log; };
         category network { default_log; };

         category security { more_log; };
         category resolver { more_log; };
         category client { more_log; };
         category unmatched { more_log; };
         category database { more_log; };
         category lame-servers { null; };
         category queries { more_log;};
};
