Is "B" a virtual domain? By "virtual IP" do you mean some system that has an IP alias configured on it?

Okay, you need to add the zone definition to your named.conf file. It'll look something like:

....
zone "virtual.com" {
        type master;
        file "virtual.zone";
};

You'll need to adjust the domain name and name to the zone file per your installtion. Then you need a zone file that would look something like:

@          IN  SOA         server.real.com. user.real.com. (
               1999072601  ; Serial
               10800       ; Refresh
               3600        ; Retry
               604800      ; Expire
               86400)      ; Minimum

           IN  NS          server.real.com.
           IN  NS          secondary.someplace.com.

virtual.com.          IN  MX  10 server.real.com.

;
;
$ORIGIN      virtual.com.
;
www          IN  A       10.0.0.1

Domain names, email address, and such need to be adjusted for your setup.

Will that do it?
