Internal / external DNS?

As I understand, what you need are Access List. You have only one dns
and in your configuration file, you create ACL's (access list) that define
what IP ranges can make queries and what domains will respond to those
For example, your private zones will not respond external queries, but if
make that query from the internal network, your dns will resolve that

Is that right?

Asunto: Internal / external DNS?

I want to have two nameds running... one on an internal address to
resolve private addresses, and one on an external address to resolve
public addresses.  But, if a lookup against the internal server fails, I
want it to then query the external server rather than return host
unknown or whatever.  Is this possible?  If so, what would this behavior
be called so I can look it up? :-)
