	IMHO, you can't. And I don't know what you are trying to achieve
with that. What queries are to be answered from the "wildcard zone" ? 
All queries not specifically directed to other zones? And so, your server
will be master for all the domains in the Internet and will serve all info
from one giant file...
	I don't see the reason behind this, even if it WOULD be possible.
