How to set up a top domain server ?

We have some seperate private networks which are interconnected. We're trying to
get a topdomain to work for these networks. We want to use .foo (figured it
wasn't in use). Our seperate networks will be managing their own domains like
* Because of technical reasons we don't want every domain to be
mirrored on one host. Now the problem: We could use seperate forward entries in
the named.conf, but we would like to have them in a single resolve file. One
that would contain entries like:            3600000  IN  NS         3600000      A          3600000  IN  NS       3600000      A

These host would be the responsible nameservers for their subdomains.

our private networks are 10.(something).* :-)
Yes, everone has a B-class network.

How would we configure something like this in bind? Or what nameserver do the
normal top-domains use to achieve such behaviour?

thanks in advance.
