I repeat, I do not know the bind situation. but security patches are
applied, even if the release number is not changed. (but the -ubuntuXXX
part is) If you want to be sure, look to the changelog
(zless /usr/share/doc/bind9/changelog.Debian.gz to see it) and see if
the security upgrade you are worried about is included.
If it is not, try to enable the backport repositories and see if this
solves the problem.
What I'm trying to explain is that is not the release number that
matters, but if the patches have been applied or not. Upgrading to the
last release of bind is a (simple) way of doing it, but is far from the
