I have bind 8.2.2, (I know! I am going to upgrade later this week!)
but this question should be version independent.  I have my server
running as the master for my internal 192.168.x.x network and as a
slave for internet connections through my firewall.  Internally I can
resolve fully qualified domain names like 'isaac.hammerdog.org' for my
home network, but I want to be able to resolve 'isaac' without using a
hosts file.  Is this possible?  My named.conf:

options {
        directory  "/etc/namedb/";
zone  "0.0.127.in-addr.arpa" {
        type  master;
        file  "named.local";
zone  "hammerdog.org" {
        type  master;
        file  "hosts.db";
        allow-update { any; };
zone  "" {
        type  slave;
        file  "named.local";
        masters  { xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx;
zone  "." {
        type  hint;
        file  "named.ca";
