or, you could just not use your isp's nameservers, and let bind do what it does.  it's unlikely that your isp's nameservers are doing you great favors, if any at all.  either way, recursion needs to be allowed for any clients [this includes localhost] which expect to be able to look up arbitrary information in dns.
