This have nothing to do with bind. if you want to resolve only by name put
the following line in '/etc/resolv.con':
when you make a dns query, you have to query for a
fully-qualified-domain-name (that is: host.domain). when you query only for
hostname, the client adds the domain from the 'search' entry in resolv.conf.
