Ive installed Bind9 on my local server and its works fine, however my DHCP has no DNS suffix and I want to be able to just ping the name (so without suffix).

Any ideas how I declare the DNS entry without a suffix?

If you have active directory, then you can set DNS search suffix list on client machines

Note that 1st dns domain name in the list must be your active directory domain followed by other unqualified domains
otherwise your native name resolution will fail and it will start new problems

The DNS suffix search list GPO setting can be found under computer configuration\administrative templates\network\DNS Client

You need to apply this GPO on OU containing Computers

If you do not have active directory and if you are using workgroup, then you need to do this manually in the network card properties or through local group policy editor (gpedit.msc) on client computers
