To elaborate, the internal clients are in a sequestered network which
will never have outside access to it. As such, the outside world can
never query something from a system in it.
Further, the external publicaly accessible DNS servers exist elsewhere
on the Internet to provide just enough zone content to make delegation
Perhaps the external publicaly accessible parent example.net can
(blindly) delegate zones to internal private DNS servers. However I
dislike this because I believe it leaves things in an unclean state for
people on the Internet a large. At the very least it means no route to
host errors at best or at worst timeouts.
Conversly, what I'm working on will immediately and successfully return
a response of NXDOMAIN. Something that I think is cleaner for the
Internet at large.
