You mean using the conf auth-zones in recursor conf?


auth-zones = sub1.domain.com=/var/zones/sub1.domain.com, 

In this case the file /var/zones/sub1.domain.com should be a bind zone 

For example http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zone_file

So I can put an instance on the public IP and an instance on the private 
IP, and only the private instance is allowed to do recursion (to 
complain with 1) )

In this case (assuming private instance doesn't know about public 
domains) if the private pdns is contacted for a public domain, it will 
go  through recursion and will contact the public pdns which will give 
the response: do you think I can accept this scenario or I have to sync 
private with public data, making it authorithative for those domains, 
for example using axfr

Thank you very much
