That works pretty well, as long as you don't use CNAMEs that point to
domains that *do* exist. 

This feature may help:

"If you want to create such fake domains or override existing domains, please
set the allow-recursion-override feature (available as of 2.9.14)."

If at all possible, try not to mix authoritative and resolver service on one
IP address. It can be mighty confusing.
