Debian 2.0. Bind 8 works but causes dials for local domain names

I have a working debian 2.0 installation providing Internet connectivity
for a small network. I have BIND 8 working as a local DNS and am able to 
resolve names forwards and backwards for local host and for my local 
domain (.local). Invalid names and addresses within the local network 
are properly declared as unknown and there is no Internet DNS lookup.

Requests for Internet addresses and names outside my domain are looked
up on Internet DNS servers and correctly returned. Reverse lookups for
addresses on my local domain are properly resolved and no Internet 
lookup is performed. Forward local dns lookups are returned correctly
but there is a dns lookup on the internet that triggers a dialup, and
any subsequent dns lookups also trigger internet lookups. 

If I prevent the internet dial then the dns lookups are still correctly
returned. I don't know what the internet traffice is but it is from my
machine on a non privilaged port (>1024) to a root dns server port 53.

Can anyone help me to stop this unnecessary Internet traffic?, and the 
unwanted dials.

Below are my DNS files
