No forwarding

Are your *sure* it's forwarding for that zone ?

IIUC, if the server is authoritative for that zone (which it *should*
be, being a slave for it), then it shouldn't forward for any request in
that zone.
Maybe it's not loading that slave zone and thus thinks it's not
authoritative for it.

Of course, if what I just said is correct, then I must wonder why there
is a possibility of

        forwarders { };

in a zone declaration, which I've seen mentioned here before, but I
can't remember the context of the discussion.

first/only.  Should I?


        forwarders {

zone "" {
        type slave;
        file "secondary/";
        masters {
        forwarders { };
