Default Bind not resolving remote domains

Hi all,

I have two DNS server (primary and secondary) which uses bind9. The problem am having currently is that, my primary dns server is able to resolve both private and remote domains while the secondary server is able to resolve only the local domains but not able to resolve the remote domains.

Primary server test:

local domain:

$ host zorinco.com 192.168.2.30
Using domain server:
Name: 192.168.2.30
Address: 192.168.2.30#53
Aliases:

zorinco.com has address 64.81.168.12
zorinco.com mail is handled by 10 mail.zorinco.com.

remote domain test:

$ host yahoo.com 192.168.2.30
Using domain server:
Name: 192.168.2.30
Address: 192.168.2.30#53
Aliases:

yahoo.com has address 72.30.38.140
yahoo.com has address 98.138.253.109
yahoo.com has address 98.139.183.24
yahoo.com mail is handled by 1 mta6.am0.yahoodns.net.
yahoo.com mail is handled by 1 mta7.am0.yahoodns.net.
yahoo.com mail is handled by 1 mta5.am0.yahoodns.net.




Secondary server test

local domain test:

$ host zorinco.com 192.168.2.20
Using domain server:
Name: 192.168.2.20
Address: 192.168.2.20#53
Aliases:

zorinco.com has address 64.81.168.12
zorinco.com mail is handled by 10 mail.zorinco.com.


remote domain test:
$ host yahoo.com 192.168.2.20
Using domain server:
Name: 192.168.2.20
Address: 192.168.2.20#53
Aliases:




As you can see the "Aliases" section of the secondary server test for remote domain test, there is no answer.

Please what could be the possible cause? This means if my primary server failed, the secondary server can not act on it's behalf.


Thank you.
