BIND9 CNAME/A Records
So, I've got Bind9 running and configured on a router which acts as the DNS for my LAN.
I want to setup so that when I resolve a hostname, it goes to a certain IP.
I currently have:
$ORIGIN home.mydomain,com. ; designates the start of this zone file in the namespace
$TTL 1h ; default expiration time of all resource records without their own TTL value
; BIND data file for mydomain,com
IN SOA home.mydomain,com. home.mydomain,com. (
2011120301 ; Serial
7200 ; Refresh
120 ; Retry
2419200 ; Expire
604800) ; Default TTL
IN NS localhost.
ns A 10.0.0.1
home.mydomain,com. IN A 10.0.0.1
voip.mydomain,com. IN A 10.0.0.11
voip IN A 10.0.0.11
;winpc IN A 10.0.0.4
;voip. mydomain,com. CNAME home.mydomain,com.
;ld IN CNAME hotmail,com.
I can also type in ld and it will resolve to hotmail,com.
If I type in home.mydomain,com, it resolve to 10.0.0.1 (Or what ever I set it to), however, if I type in voip.mydomain,com, or any other TLD, or sub-domain, it resolves to what ever my ISP would.
So, it's only resolving home.mydomain,com, or what ever else I place in the $ORIGIN correctly.
Is there any way to configure BIND9 to do A records, or CNAME records for all domains?
Basically, I want it to look in its own internal records, before requesting from the internet, if it can't find a record, then request from ISP.

Change your $ORIGIN home.mydomain,com. to $ORIGIN mydomain,com..
Origin is your domain only without a host.
I would also remove all the mydomain.com. from your zone file as it really isn't needed.
