Default DNS Questions

my server is working great but I want to add a few servers on my local network.
The main server being server1.xyz.ltd and now I want to as server2 server3 and server4
I can access them all by ip address but I need to find a way to access them via name.

It would also be great if I could access them from the outside world by that name as well but I only have 1 public static IP.

First and foremost I need to be able to type something like ping server 2 and not get ping: unknown host server2

Then be able to type ping server2.xyz.ltd in my network and have it respond with something other then ping: unknown host server2.xyz.ltd

Any help would be great.
I have tried to update the xyz.local.db file but it still is not making any changes.

Thank you in advance.

You have to create A records for server2, server3, and server4 on the authoritative nameservers for xyz.ltd. You can find out the authoritative nameservers by running
dig ns xyz.ltd
