bind/named local search lost

I know this is like 1 line, but someone overwrote the zone file for our domain. Basically we have some web servers (ws1, ws2, ws3, etc.) and from any machine, you could type ping ws3 <enter> and it would goto the DNS, resolve and work.

Now that leads to an unknown host. You now need to put ping which I know I fixed with something in the DNS server, think it was the zone not the actual named.conf.

This is gonna kill me when I get the answer.... but any help is appreciated

Was a bit off then what I thought, I thought it was the search in the resolv.conf, but this problem was a windows slave DNS server had a bad suffix in the tcp/ip properties!

Admitting stupidity is the 1st step from what I read!
