Question about Records not authoritative for

You could just create an authoritative zone for the domain on your internal
view to override recursion.  You can then create a wildcard 'A' record or
such to resolve to, etc.

Subject: Question about Records not authoritative for


I was wondering if Bind allows you to override certain records for zones we
are not authoritative for. Essentially we have a virus that some users have
been infected with, and we want to temporarily blockout the domain name of
the server that this virus connects to to send its information out.
(Basically by having this domain name point to I know it is a
protocol violation, but I was just wondering if it is possible to do this
and what would be the best way of going about it. We essentially have two
servers with two views. One view serves our DNS zones to the outside world
(With recursion disabled) and the other performs recursive queries for our
on campus users. Obviously we would only be doing this on our internal view.
