Let's study it in order. First, since it is a BIND mailing list, I
will not talk about DHCP.

By name? "ping www.yahoo.com" works?
Your configuration seems OK. But you did not indicate what resolver
you use (indicated in /etc/resolv.conf). I suspect that it is not your
Other possibility: the zone was not loaded (syntax error or something
like that). Examining BIND's log file will tell you more (see
/etc/syslog.conf to see where is the log file).
Anyway, try the following commands and tell us the results:
dig A www.connected.it
dig NS connected.it
Be sure to use your BIND:
dig @X.Y.Z.W A www.connected.it
dig @X.Y.Z.W NS connected.it
(with X.Y.Z.W being the IP address of the machine which runs BIND.)
