Is it possible to allow recursion for a single zone in BIND 9.6?

Don't you mean 'view'? – Jiri Xichtkniha Oct 17 '13 at 9:55
I don't think so, I've created a zone which redirects any queries for www.mydomain.com to another name server and anything else is resolved locally. This redirect only works if recursion is enabled in named.conf.options, but has the adverse affect of allowing any domain to be resolved by the server such as google.com – 8inf Oct 17 '13 at 10:13
