Why not just:
      allow-update { none; };
in BIND?
I would expect that to be not much work processing than what the firewall
has to do, and less because of the overhead of the firewall.  And
definitely less likely to break things - the filter in the firewall in
likely to mis-categorize some packets it has not thought of.
