Yep. Put dnsmasq in front of bind and tell it to route all *.com queries to the specific nameserver 
you want.
It's very flexible like that.

I have it set up at my folks place on their openwrt router. All normal queries go to the standard 
isp resolvers, but anything destined for .home gets sent to my internal dns over an openvpn tunnel. 
Means that even while I'm on their network, all my names resolve but I don't have to wait for all 
the queries to be piped over the vpn to my server (which is how it used to work).
