    Your config would be appreciated as well.

    Globally you can configure your caching nameserver in one of two
    ways (with BIND):

    - run the server standalone and let it query the root, acting recursively
      for your clients ;

    - configure forwarders (for instance, your upstream's NS servers), and
      tell BIND to only use those.
