Even so, it doesn't seem to be working that way either.
I was wondering if you were trying to setup an internal only server. If this server is going to be queried by internet, then yes, you would need public IP address.
Also look into using bind "views". Then you can setup an internal view and external view which would return public/private ip address based on source address of query. i.e.
A query from 192.168.x.x (internal view) for edwardcrosby.com = 192.168.x.x
A query from 126.96.36.199 (external view) for edwardcrosby.com = x.x.x.x; where x.x.x.x is the public side of your firewall.
