It's not confusing at all. I just wonder why. We use our ISP for domain
dns so that they provide a reverse email pointer. However, we run bind
(named) as a caching name server on the LAN. We have a tqmcube zone
defined so that clients can set up dns to, well, "dns" outgoing mail to
"smtp" a proxy to "squid," etc. There's no conflict.

The advantage is faster resolution on the WAN with simplicity on the LAN
(no HOSTS required).
