It's what entries I need to put in the other DNS zones, is it A Rec or CName or both ?, I've read so many different things aboiut DNS but still find it hard to get my head round all of the intircacies, luckily my main one I managed to get working okin the past, it's the new ones [2 of them] that I need to get up and running. As I say, a picture would be VERY helpful.

To verify local DNS, launch Terminal.app on the server, and issue the non-destructive, diagnostic command:
sudo changeip -checkhostname
To set up DNS and for better or worse, you need to know what the A IPv4 and AAAA IPv6 machine records are, and what the CNAME alias records are. Tersely, the A records are the canonical names for the hosts; the names of the machines. The CNAMES are secondary names; aliases.
That applies to 10.6, and — if you check the show-all-records stuff — also to 10.7 and later.
If you have questions on what's written there, ask.
Sorry, no pictures.

Ok, once again I have to thank you Mr.H .... it took a while for this old git to read through your missive, but, in the end, I got the other zones set up and, by forcing clients to look at "ONLY" my own DNS, everything now works as it should.
