I've yet to try it, but if you're running BIND you should be able to split it up in to views:
- View A takes queries from your end users (based on source IP) and acts as a recursive cache.
- View B takes queries from everyone else (catchall) and answers authoritatively.
You'll probably run in to a couple of problems where and end user needs an authoritative answer of a name you are authoritative for, but that'll be a small percentage I expect.
Again, I haven't tested this, but I can't see any obvious reason why it wouldn't work.
If they are split then it doesn't really matter if you still host a lame
Maybe. Note that the same is true of MTA and MX servers. (ie. MX record points at the same place for domains you host, as your customers do to send mail to domains you don't host).
