What you mean with "according to IP ranges/domain names"?

- if you want redirect clients from specific networks to different servers
  you can use BIND and view statements:

view "name" {
	match-clients {; };
	forwarders {; };
	forward only;

- if you want redirect target domains to different servers you can use
  BIND and forward zones:

zone "example" IN {
        type forward;
        forward only;
        forwarders {; };
