Smile BIND multiple domains


I'm having a problem setting up multiple domains in bind 9 (FC7). I have one domain setup perfectly with forward and reverse entries.

I followed the same procedure for the second domain, but canít seem to get it working. Iím a little confused about how bind handles two separate zones pointing to the same IP. Should I be creating a slave or a master zone for the second domain? Should I add the second domain entries to the same reverse zone file as the first domain? Or create a separate reverse zone for the second domain?

Much thanks in advance for any help.

This is my reverse zone which 2 domain point to same reverse zone:

$TTL 3h

@ IN SOA (
2005030116 ; serial
3h ; Refresh after 3 hours
1h ; Retry after 1hour
1w ; Expire after 1 week
1h ); Negative caching TTL of 1 hour

; Name server (The Name '@' is implied)
IN MX 10

please help, Thanks
