primary forwarding requests to secondary

Is is valid to have the primary authoritative name server forwarding all 
non-authoritative requests to the secondary name server? I have a really 
weird issue I can't seem to fix. The domain has its primary 
name server set to and is running 9.1.3. The secondary stops resolving the domain after a day. The is server is 
running 9.2.0. I tried also setting up bind 8.2.5 at and it 
still is able to resolve cyberkeep. Only the 9.2.0 machine stops resolving 
the domain. I think this is some sort of misconfiguration rather than a bug.
