A very basic question...

From what I have read so far, I can see that this might be a very
flame-worthy question, so please don't hurt me, I'm just a beginner...
I have read every howto that I can find on setting up a DNS server for a
very small, 12 seats, network. The DNS server just needs to be
authoritative for the internal network and then it should forward
external requests to the outside world. Here is the question...
Most of the howtos say that I should setup a Root Zone so that I can
access the Internet. Then a small few of the howtos say that I should
use the forwarder option to be able to access the Internet and they say
that the Root Zone should not be used because the Root DNS servers
aren't meant for that.
So, which is the best/proper way to do this?
