I don't think you can.  Assuming the bind you're running is being used by 
the system as a caching server, and assuming it's bind9, you can tell it 
to forward certain zones to rbldnsd's IP/port.  Have a look at 
http://njabl.org/rsync.html for more detailed instructions on how to setup 
rbldnsd and bind on the same system.

They have to be running an rsync server for you to be able to rsync...but 
AFAIK, most of the bigger dnsbls are using rbldns or rbldnsd and rsync 
rather than bind and axfr.
