What you're saying here doesn't make sense, so some more details are

Is what you wrote above what you meant to write? If so that's very 
surprising. Can you give some more details? Are these private zones, or 
are you seeing this traffic from the Internet? Is there a search list 
involved? If so, and tld is listed before domain.tld that would make 
sense, and it should be fixed there.

If you really are seeing traffic trying to resolve hostname.tld, you 
probably need to fix the root problem rather than trying to support the 
bad behavior.
