>From my experience, there is no way to do this.  Once an answer is made authoritatively from your internal server, you can't tell it to go somewhere else.  Authoritative is authoritative, and even if you know there's a better answer somewhere else, you're stuck with what you've gone.

What I've had to do in the past is add entries from external to internal, so that you don't need the "if it fails, try here" functionality.  It doubles the administrative overhead and maintenance, and can cause some headaches when something is missed, but it's the best solution I've found so far.

Hi All,
I have a query:
I have example.com setup on a public dns and example.com set up on a 
local dns.
If a record is not found in the local, how can I force it to look for a 
record in the public dns, for the same domain.

Could some one please let me know the options to add to bind9 please.

Kind Regards,
