Why do you have remote hosts in your named.hosts file? You should be
looking up names remote domains by querying their servers.

For a remote host, does the entry look like:
hostname.otherdomain.com IN A address
All names in your named.hosts file will have your local domain appended to
them, so that's equivalent to:
hostname.otherdomain.com.yourdomain.com. IN A address
You can't mix multiple domains in one zone file. For each domain that you
want to host on your server, you need to create a separate zone file for
the names in that domain, with corresponding entries in named.conf.
