I have solved the problem ... the domain has not yet been entered in .si TLD name servers, thats why SERVFAIL ... now it is resolvable without problems ;-)

However, I do have another question. If I want such a domain to be resolvable (like www.urad.si CNAME urad.blogspot.com) I need to open (allow) my recursor for the whole world. Would it not be better to implement an option like allow-inner-resolv=yes/no - so if one would set to allow recursing only for internal network, but would like the to-external domains would also be resolvable, it would set the allow-inner-resolv to "yes". Or does something like this already exits?

Kind regards, Marko Kobal.
