Default Virtual domains & BIND configutation

Hi all,

Need a help configuring BIND.
I’ve setup a new server (let’s say, named: doc. following a “virtual users and domain howto” and it works fine.

In my organization, a educational organization, there is a mail server running and configured to accept mails for the domain (

What is intended is to have two subdomains one for students and other for other people (e.g. and with virtual users such as,,, etc., and to have the new server accepting mail for these subdomains.

My questions is how to proper configure BIND so that email to,..., will be delivered to the new server?

So far the zone I’ve set up looks like follows:

$TTL 14400
@      86400    IN      SOA (
                2009101501      ; serial, todays date+todays
                86400           ; refresh, seconds
                7200            ; retry, seconds
                3600000         ; expire, seconds
                86400 )         ; minimum, seconds 86400 IN NS 86400 IN NS
tels                    IN A
ns2			    IN A IN A IN A IN MX 10
mail        IN A
www         IN CNAME
ftp         IN CNAME
So I think adding the following lines :
Code: 86400 IN NS 86400 IN NS 	IN A 	IN A 	IN MX 10 	IN MX 10
Is that a valid configuration?
