HOWTO: Linux multihomed dns client - reverse lookup

The following thread is closed: 133552-howto-linux-multihomed-dns-client (Sorry I am not allowed to post URLs)

Therefore I write this append in an own thread.

The HOWTO in the referenced thread helped me a lot and I only want to append how to make reverse lookup working for a local zone:

One had to add the following lines:

zone "" {  // the reversed cluster of your local network
        type forward;
        forwarders {
                w.x.y.z; // your private name server
