Pl. suggest me Well the answer is very straightforward (at least for me). DNS is a service that doesn't require the global zone, so it is better in a non- global zone. We run all of our DNS servers in non-global zonse. Especially for security this is a good thing, as well known DNS servers have security vulnerabilities form time to time. In the case of a non global zone only the zone is compromised and the attacker can't penetrate as deep as he could in a global zone.
