Newbie question: exposing a "sub" domain

Hi -

I have bind 9 up and running on my Linux server.

I have a registered domain, say "".

Can I expose "" to the
external world, or do I have to register my
nameserver or ""?

In a nutshell:

If a public nameserver out there in i-land gets
a request to go to "", does it:

1> look up ""
2> It will not be found.
3> then, lookup "" -or- fail?

Sorry I seem to be clueless (I am!)

Aloha => Beau.
