Thanks teve. Thats not quite what we want.

ha.net is a domain we chose as an internal name some time ago but never
registered. Our samba domain as ad.ha.net. We have the samba internal dns
set to forward requests to our opendns provider for all other domains.
Recently someone parked on the ha.net domain. now, when a request for
something like this happens -- machine.ad.ha.net is sent to samba, if
'machine' doesn't exist the request gets forwarded and we get a response
that is completely outside our domain. It's our mistake to know have
registered the ha.net domain -- but now its gone. We don't want any
requests for ad.ha.net OR ha.net to leave samba. We are hoping this is
