I don't see any plausible harm from continuing to use an empty policy
zone that has never been used when it was not empty.  However, I assume
you had reasons for watching what happens when the policies start being
applied.  Things outside BIND might not work as expected when records
finally do appear in the zone.

If I had never used it before, I'd probably set an overriding PASSTHRU
response policy on the zone, but otherwise leave the configuration
unchanged in the expectation that data will eventually appear in the zone.
