You can make a zone of however many labels you wish, but it's not 
perfect in ONLY affecting that one label.  For example, if your zone 
was "" you would also be authoritative for any 
additional labels, such as ""  Those 
wouldn't be resolved theough the regular authority for 
(or whatever subzone might be delegated.)

This is, however, a feature of dnsmasq.  Simply list the name and 
address in /etc/hosts and that name [only] is served out via DNS to 
your local resolver clients.
