private tld

DNSSEC sign the private TLD and configure its KSK as a trust anchor on the
recursive resolvers.

Alternatively, you can configure all your recursive resolvers as slaves for
the private zone. Authoritative responses aren't validated on a mixed
authoritative/recursive nameserver.

Those are the only two options that immediately spring to my mind.
