"closing" a bind 9.2 server with named.conf

I don't want users on my domain or elsewhere to be able to dig into my DNS records. I have already configured it so that only computers on my network can do recursive lookups, but I feel it is equally if not more important that I disable NXT walking. Can anyone provide me with a quick how-to (or a link to one) on getting that done? Also, what negative effects might such a setup convey? TIA

(CentOS 4.2, bind 9.2.4))

I have always used the Secure Bind Template, by Rob Thomas, to secure my public DNS servers. Should help you achieve your goal.
