/usr/ports/dns/bind9/    

Read the Handbook for information on how to set things up.
Additionally, I'd suggest checking out Greg Leahy's FreeBSD book, now
available in downloadable PDF format from
http://www.lemis.com/grog/Documentation/CFBSD/.  Even better, buy it.

If you don't have a registered domain name, note that the "example.org"
domain is reserved for such uses; but any "fantasy" name should work,
providing the name you choose doesn't conflict with a real (registered)
domain.  

You'll also most likely want to add a DHCP server.

cd /usr/ports && make search name=dhcp

The rest is left as an exercise for the reader.
