BIND - restricting public access to a specific zone

I have an internal zone that I've setup, however I'd like to restrict access to this zone file to only machines on our internal network with the IP addresses 10.9.3.x.  

I am running Fedora Core 3 with BIND.  How can I restrict all outside traffic and not allow them to resolve host entries just for that zone?  I can see where there is an allow-transfer within my named.conf file, however within the zone file itself - is this where I need to restrict it?

Thanks for your response.

Hi,

Add an allow-query statement to named.conf for the zone:

zone "name"
{
  ...
  allow-query { 10.9.3.0/24; }
}

OK - I don't have to do anything else as far as adding a statement to say "don't allow anyone else, but allow 10.9.3.0/24?"

Nope, it's implied by the allow-query statement.
