How to resolve base domain name using bind/named?


I have my bind/named server (running on RH 9) correctly configured to resolve nodes within my domain. In other words the dns server resolves ping names for correctly. However, if I do a ping to it fails.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you!
