Some of the things that stub zones we can do, we can do as well. So you can
define customer NS records for a zone, for example, or you can override an
entire zone from a zone file.

To forward a whole zone, use forward-zones, forward-zones-file or
forward-zones-recurse. This is the equivalent of setting custom NS records
in a stub zone.

To override specific domains, use auth-zones.

If you have a need not covered by this, please let us know.
