For educational interest i am setting up an authoritative only DNS server at home and after a few failures i am starting at the beginning again.

I am using Bind9 with Ubuntu 14.04 server software. 

Todays question revoles around the /etc/network/interfaces file.

In the line starting with 'address' i have inserted the internal IP address of the machine running the bind software. I presume that is correct?

In the line starting with 'dns-nameserver' i am unsure whether it should be the same the 'address' as above or whether it should be my static public IP address. Which should it be?

Thanks for any assistance you may wish to give
