    I work with Mac OS X 10.5 Server and Bind.

    Bind does not answer questions (Name Lookup) from the Internet.

    Ports are correctly open (53 TCP/UDP)

    Here the named.conf:
    // It is recommended that be the only address used.
    // This also allows non-privileged users on the local host to manage
    // your name server.
    // Default controls
    controls  {
            inet port 54 allow    {any;   }
            keys    { "rndc-key";    };
    options  {
            directory "/var/named";
            forwarders {} ;
            allow-query { any; };
            allow-transfer { none; };
            allow-recursion { none; };
            auth-nxdomain no;
            dnssec-enable yes;
            version "My version is so secret that I even dont know what Im running on";
             * If there is a firewall between you and nameservers you want
             * to talk to, you might need to uncomment the query-source
             * directive below.  Previous versions of BIND always asked
             * questions using port 53, but BIND 8.1 uses an unprivileged
             * port by default.
             query-source address port 53;
    // a caching only nameserver config
    logging {
            include "/etc/dns/";
    // Public view read by Server Admin
    include "/etc/dns/";
    // Server Admin declares all zones in a view. BIND therefore dictates
     // that all other zone declarations must be contained in views.
