Peter, list, sorry for that, I don't know how the message got so
scrambled. Here it is, reposted:

dig will find whatever BIND serves from its zone file. If there's no
entry for www.xx in your zone file,  don't expect dig to find it.

Add the entries to the zone file and try again. When you added the
"www" entry, you only set up the " " entry, not
"" - it doesn't work like that.

IIRC, you said that doesn't work either, correct? Have
you tried running named-checkzone on the zone file too see if it finds
any errors?

If it's a public domain, you can also use to do some
checks on your configuration.
