Delegate user permissions to restart daemon

I am setting up a DNS server and would like to have an "admin" user account with basic privileges pertaining to administration. I figured out the Bind configuration part and the user does have rights to modify zones. Now I am trying to figure out how to give him permissions to restart the named daemon. Also I am would like to allow that user to reboot the server. Can you guys please point me in the right direction?

This is a Fedora version 9.
