The DNS boxes are running RHL 5.? and forward to the
firewall which proxies an external DNS server.

can I revert to an older bind?

a fully qualified name will work (eg piper.armfinancial.com
works while piper does not).

external names (which must be fully qualified) work okay.
(eg www.yahoo.com works)

for external hosts bind is doing a forward request. bind does not resolve out of
the /etc/hosts. I think this is a misconfiguration on the bind server. I suggest
you dump the named database and take a look at it (ndc help)
