Im having a Ubuntu 11.10 Desktop system,how can I configure the BIND server to resolve as the following:

I should be able to use Google's Public DNS for the internet

www.rootserver.com should resolve to my computer

www.wifi.device should resolve to


Take a look at dnsmasq instead, is pretty far more easy to configure than bind: you just need to install it, and it will use DNS defined in /etc/resolv.conf as upstream server, and in /etc/hosts you can define the 2 records you need.

Remember to reload it on every change.
