DNS Server with Internal and External Access

We have a djbdns DNS server with private and public interfaces.
We have an internal zone xyz.local and a public zone xyz.com and our DNS currently resolves all the queries of the internal IPs/PCs for any zone(e.g. all our internal clients can query anything on our DNS).
We want that it also should response the queries from outside on public interface but for our public zone (xyz.com) only.
How to do that?

I think you can run 2 instance of BIND Server. First on your LAN interface Adress & the second one on your PUBLIC interface adress.

Please try this one if you are using djbdns:

It gives simple explanation about how to configure DNS (tinydns) and other components of djbdns.
