I think I'd have to see your config to understand.  But if you
had it like this:

        view a {
           zone {
              type slave;
              masters { ... };
              file "filename";

        view b {
           zone {
               in-view a;

... then you'd have accessible within both views, and it will
be saved only once, in "filename".

If you don't have any zones that differ between your internal
and external views, then views are unnecessary. Just use
"allow-recursion { localnets; };" and external queries won't be
allowed to do recursion.
