FreeBSD DJBDNS: Tinydns Add Additional Domain Names

How do I add additional domains names such as cyberciti.com and nixcraft.com to my existing tinydns servers ns1.nixcraft.in and ns2.nixcraft.in?

You can add additional domains to the same data config file as follows.

Open /var/ns1.nixcraft.in/root/data file, enter:
# vi /var/ns1.nixcraft.in/root/data
Append cyberciti.com and nixcraft.com as follows:

##########################
# cyberciti.com zone
##########################
.cyberciti.com::ns1.nixcraft.in
.cyberciti.com::ns2.nixcraft.in
#define mx for cyberciti.com
@cyberciti.com::mail01.nixcraft.in:10
@cyberciti.com::mail02.nixcraft.in:20
#define A and www for cybercit.com
+cyberciti.com:74.86.48.99
+www.cyberciti.com:74.86.48.99
##########################
# nixcraft zone
##########################
.nixcraft.com::ns1.nixcraft.in
.nixcraft.com::ns2.nixcraft.in
#define mx for cyberciti.com
@nixcraft.com::mail01.nixcraft.in:10
@nixcraft.com::mail02.nixcraft.in:20
#define A and www for cybercit.com
+nixcraft.com:75.126.168.152
+nixcraft.com:75.126.168.152

Save and close the file. cd to /var/ns1.nixcraft.in/root and run "make". This compiles the data.cdb which tinydns reads:
# cd /var/ns1.nixcraft.in/root
# make

Again test newly added domain using host or other tools:
# host www.cyberciti.com
OR
# dnsip nixcraft.com

How about a “catchall” or “blackhole” TinyDNS configuration?
I mean something that with BIND is done by definining the “.” zone as master and adding a wildcard “*” record in the zone file.
Useful for parking domain services, the catchall DNS should respond authoritative for any request.
There are existing examples online, try for example:

dig PutAnythingHere.WhatEverExtYouLike @ns1.fastpark.net ANY

As you see, it assumes it is authoritative for anything you query.
Any ideas?
Thank you
