Catch ALL Setup

The problem I am actually facing is, that I don't want to use it in a 
specific zone, but basicly in every imaginable zone. No matter which 
Query comes in, always respong with IP X.

A normal wildcard setup for a specific zone is pretty obvious and 
straight forward.

The search path wouldn't matter either, since all other domains should 
be looked up at the same DNS anyway. And even if clients were to try 
reaching any external subnet, they'd be out of luck.
