OK. Now it works fine, thanks

I use because I read about it in "DNS and BIND, 5th Edition 
By Paul Albitz, Cricket Liu "

"You can also configure the resolver to query the host's local nameserver
using either the local host's IP address or the zero address. The zero
address,, is interpreted by most TCP/IP implementations to mean
"this host." The host's real IP address, of course, also means "this host."
On hosts that don't understand the zero address, you can use the loopback

Thank you for help

Best regards
