In a caching dns server, there is no cache file that is saved for dns queries. It's all stored in memory. Therefore, if you bounce BIND, all the cache is gone.

Type of memory? Not sure what you are referring to but if your caching dns servers is resolving a lot of domains, it can consume quite a bit of memory. This might affect some of your services, depending on how many services and amount of memory you have on the server.
