My problem is, if I am creating a domain in DNS it will contain the internal address of that machine where the ISPconfig is running (eg, so the zone isn't good for external querys. Is there any ideas how can I create good zones for both external and internal querys?

you can create DNS-Records in the DNS-Manager manually, that point to your external IP-Address when you not check the "Create DNX" checkbox when creating a new web.

I'am not familar with this feature of BIND9. If you want to extend the functions of ISPConfig:

1) Do you like to join the development team and get SVN access?

2) Download the latest SVN Version, install it. In the Management section you will find the form designer. The form designer is nescessary to add fields to the DNS-Manager forms. Be careful, the formdesigner is still a bit unstable, so make a backup of your ispconfig database and if something does not work as expected, simply restore you database backup.

3) The scripts that are writing the config files are in the directory "scripts/lib/classes" in the installer tar.gz and after installation these scripts are in "/root/ispconfig/scripts/lib/classes". The script you need to extend is: ispconfig_bind.lib.php
