not if you maintain a internal and a external view of some hundret zones 
because you have to replace public against private IP's and feed tw 
namserver pairs :-)

with a cisco router you have two options:

* no connection to public IPs answered by your nameserver
* enable DNS-ALG which would translate

problem is that DNS-ALG fucks up DNS heavily - one example is that the 
zone-transfer between master/slave get rewritten and frankly in front of 
every CNAME a line placed setting TTL to 0

it took hours to find out why the secondary nameserver responds to the 
hwole world with other TTL and how it can be that the zonefiles between 
slave and master are completly different :-)
