The question is: why I don't see the data when I'm asking localhost, 
which is configured to be a master for this zone? Is it an expected 
behavior, and is there a way to get this information from a server, even 
without a delegation from 'upstream' servers? I'm persuaded that I used 
to have some domains defined just locally and they resolved ok...
