NO. The Dns server has all the correct records for eurosoft-uk.com
eurosoft-aus.com mpmaster-europe.com . the freebsd machine has the dns
server on it and will become the gateway/ www server. I would like all the
internal users to use that machine as the dns server. But from the testing i
have been doing , when i use that server for dns ie to look up www.yahoo.com
it cant find the record. I hope this helps a bit mor

There isn't really such a thing as a primary DNS server - only primary
zones within a server.  Do you mean that you've got a single zone (i.e.
eurosoft-uk.com) split across multiple servers, and neither server has
a complete set of records for this zone?  If so, you'll probably have
to think again about how you want it to work.
