You should check yum updates for the same.

Go on, have a guess
It's generally not a good idea to upgrade applications outside of the OS provider versions, in this case supplied to you via yum in rpms. If you really want to do that, then you would have to compile bind from source and make sure that you exclude bind from any future updates from CentOS by excluding the bind* rpms in /etc/yum.conf - you'll then have to track the bind developers site daily to be sure to upgrade if a new version comes out.

The only real reason to go down that route is if there's a new function in the latest version of bind that you need, otherwise stay with the OS vendor versions which have security and bugfixes back-ported to stable versions.
