Thanks a lot , 

That was very informative. 
How could I possibly  do the Following 

For selective zones I would like to forward the Query to Root Server.  

And for the Rest ( internet)  I transfer the query to another forwarder  
which is running on firewall. 

my primary server is jp.domain 

so upper level is .domain 

zone ".domain" {
	type forward;
	forward only;
	forwarders { root servers address ; } 

or I have to write *.domain infront of zone  

Am I expecting too Much ? 

Thanks a lot
