   Thank you very much for your answers.
    You'll have to excuse my ignorance that I didn't mention
    my machine is a Solaris II (you will also have to excuse my English too !)
   Anyway, the solution was simple. I only had to edit the nsswitch.conf
    (the nsswitch.conf for dns not the generic one) and replace the
      entry: "hosts files" with: "hosts dns files". I restarted the named daemon
   and everything worked just fine. Maybe my question was stupid, but after
    all the time I lost for that simple thing i wonder: Why should I Buy
    next time a Sun machine ..when for my Sun I'm trying 2 days to make named run properly
   and for An Alpha workstation it took me no more than half an hour
   to setup everything. Anyway I still keep wondering .....

I would like to thank everyone. Thank you for your help:
