I don't know what clients you are talking about but those clients need 
to be able to follow referrals. With named, you can turn off recursion 
support. It will then refer clients to the next appropriate authority 
like the root servers who will, in turn, refer them to the appropriate 
name servers and so on until an authoritative name server is reached.

I hope this is what you want.
