a provision on a rc1 or latest git build should default to internal DNS.
I guess that with internal DNS named.conf won't be created.

If you want to use bind flatfile or dlz solutions you have to add the
--dns-backend=BIND9_FLATFILE or --dns-backend=BIND9_DLZ option and I
guess that named.conf will be created by provision.

I'm not sure if this is the solution but hope this helps.
