Indeed the Red Hat bind RPM's do not include a named.conf, unless you 
install the caching-nameserver package as well which has a very simple 
named.conf for a caching/recursing only setup:

--- SNIP
[nathan at askew nathan]$ yum -d 0 info caching-nameserver
Name   : caching-nameserver
Arch   : noarch
Version: 7.2
Release: 7
Size   : 4.10 kB
Group  : System Environment/Daemons
Repo   : Red Hat Linux @ UGA 9 - i386 - Base
Summary: The configuration files for setting up a caching name server.
 The caching-nameserver package includes the configuration files that
will make BIND, the DNS name server, act as a simple caching
nameserver. Many users on dialup connections use this package along
with BIND for this purpose.

If you would like to set up a caching name server, you will need to
install the caching-nameserver package and bind.
