Well, if you put in a * wildcard, it would match any 
name that doesn't already exist in that part of the namespace. But it 
would even match invalid names like Do 
you mind that? Assuming this is for web, can you configure your 
webserver with a "default" home page, or a page that informs the user 
that the domain name is invalid?

Note that with rndc, you can reload a single zone instead of having to 
restart the whole nameserver. If you convert over to using Dynamic 
Update for your updates, you don't even have to explicitly reload the 
zone when you make a change to its contents...
