The parents (which answer questions for the Internet) would be ignorant 
of the subdomain (so the Internet is ignorant).  That means that all 
hosts wanting to resolve names in the subdomain have to use the internal 
(and authoritative) name servers as their resolvers (in /etc/resolv.conf 
or equivalent).
