How exactly is this different from using private TLD domain? In any way,
you have to provide authoritative server for that zone. You can copy
original root zone or create your own root. In any case you have to host
your domain. In private DNS space, chance to get collision is almost
non-existent, you can choose anything you want. example domains might be
useful enough.

You need NS and A records in root zone, and authoritative host on your
zone. Some example can be found in BIND bin/tests/system/resolver [1].
