That's to be expected. Your server isn't authoritative for those domains.

In BIND 8 and earlier, if the server had to recurse (either to a forwarder
or the authoritative servers) to get an answer, it would simply relay the
answer back to the client. So if the answer it received was authoritative,
it would send an authoritative answer to the client.
In BIND 9, these answers will have the Authoritative bit turned off, just
as if they'd come from the cache. The AA flag now indicates whether the
server that the client queried is authoritative.
