Very good points.
If you don't want to be a full secondary for those internal domains,
you could use the 'stub' directive for them, without much effort
and without having to add your own code into bind.
(stub is also quite useful for setting up a local cacheing only server,
avoiding the problems of receiving bad data for your own local domains.)
