I am trying to setup a wildcard for my domain mycroft.org with bind9, but really don't know where to begin.

Any suggestions?

Hey I think this is what you are asking. If you are referring to hosts wildcards you can enter something like this in your bind files.

*.testbox IN A

Then anything.testbox.mycroft.org would resolve to

For PTR you only need testbox.

4 IN PTR testbox.mycroft.org.

Also CNAMEs would be the same I think.

*.testbox IN CNAME anotherbox

Thanks, that worked.
I used:

*.mycroft.org IN CNAME mycroft.org.
