And for reverse lookups, is it the zones you need to
create, not the forward domains..

In a private DNS who should not ever perform reverse lookups other
than locally registered IP addresses you can add a empty zone
defininition for, and you will quickly terminate all
IP->Name lookups for addresses not registered locally.

Of if the local DNS is fully disconnected from the Internet then you
should have your own root record. This will make all DNS lookups of
data not registered locally to fail immediately.
