Yes, that's what it says.

Sidney, I'm having trouble understanding your problem space here. Are you 
saying, "Given that I cannot control all resolving name servers on my 
network, and given that I therefore cannot enforce a policy of serving 
empty zones for RFC 1918-related zones, AS112-related zones, etc.; I must 
therefore create a solution that will somehow contain queries inside my 
network that otherwise would go out to the Internet?"
