Each view is like a separate slice of the database, there is no 
"inheritance" or sharing of data between views, short of playing 
file-level tricks, i.e. pointing the same zone definition in different 
views to the same file.

So, if some view other than the "any" view is matched, and there is no or defined in that view, then names 
in those two domains won't be visible for the matched client(s).
