Sorry, I was taking the above question as a separate question, not
necessarily relating to the original context. I do specify some of my
ISP's DNS as forwarders to bind, and I use bind because my machine's the
server that looks after the names for the machines on our internal
network, so it's the authoritative server there for a private thing that
isn't in the "world's" domain name system.
