Kevin, thanks for the reponse. I'm glad I'm not going crazy. Out of
curiosity, is this BIND 8 requirement of delegating AND type forwarding
documented anywhere? Also, do you know what happens if your delegation is
to different servers than are listed in your forwarders list in the type
forward zone? Which servers actually get sent the query?
