I am definitely not an authority on Bind, so I am little confused :)
I have two views, internal which matches local nets/local host. Its a recursive caching only server. The last view. external is no recursive and authoritive for one domain and is set to match external hosts only.

When I nslookup from inside the network, it seems it matches the first view and then stops, so the client cant lookup any info for the second views authoritive zone.

I wondered if I could include the "external" view in the first view, or I suppose I can simply copy the details from the second view into the first, but that forces me to keep it updated in two places...
