I would like to know if it is possible to configure in Bind
overlapping reverse zones. For example, load all reverse zones for
IPv4 private addressing that come configured by default with the
package Bind of my Linux distribution:

zone ""      { type master; file "/etc/bind/db.empty"; };

And only add one new zone for a specific zone for which I need reserve

zone ""      { type master; file
"/etc/bind/db.rev.10.10.10"; };

- Could I configure two overlapping zones in Bind?
- If I do a reverse zone resolution I suppose that the more specific
zone (for zone would be the chosen
by Bind to respond (instead of Is that true?
