The "@" Notation?

Another person who is new to DNS.
I am looking at BIND 8/9
I have just read the 4th Chapter in the 4th Ed of DNS and BIND from
It mentions shortcuts and one of them in the "@" notation.
As I have read the @ is replaced in the zone file by the origin, which comes
from the zone statement in named.conf? The main question is do I need to
have a trailing period (.) in the zone statement so that @ is complete when
it is replaced in the zone file.
So should named.conf be like so?
With the trailing period (.) or can I leave it off as BIND would know this
I think this quite important as if I get it wrong all my hosts listed in the
zone file without the domain attached (like so) would then fail?
localhost IN A 127.0.0.1
host-a IN A 192.168.10.1
host-b IN A 192.168.10.2
host-c IN A 192.168.10.3
I hope I have explained this ok..
