Assuming its a single entry (as i read in your post) you can just add that entry in the db file for the tld. Locate this in the named.conf for the zone, then edit that file with your editor of choice. Add an A record for the host you need, you might consider adding a PTR in the corresponding reverse zone. You will need to reload the DNS service (or HUP it).
