This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Do you want to do this for subdomains of a single domain, or every domain you ever get asked about? If the latter, how do you resolve domains which your instance of Bind does not control? – DaveRandom Aug 18 '11 at 22:52
I want to do this for every domain. The bind Server resolves "normal" domains with the root servers and has a internal list too. – Johni Aug 19 '11 at 0:23

Hope it helps you.

Seems to me that this question belongs to site ;) Sorry.

This feature has apparently been added in BIND 9.9 - otherwise known as NXDOMAIN rewriting.
