I am trying another solution. I have entered all my PRIVATE addresses in
my host file on my slave.  This appears to work so
I shall leave it before trying Barry's subdomain idea. My system is
SS20, Solaris 2.6(patched current) and the PCs seem happy.

WRT, the first suggestion, I don't have access to the remote zone
files and my hostmaster and I have decided that doing things locally is
best for all.  Thanks as it is certainly a solution.
