As far as I know, BIND will only forward a request if
a) it isn't authoritative for the RR requested and
b) doesn't have the answer in its cache.
The BIND9 ARM says at http://www.bind9.net/Bv9ARM.ch06.html#options
under section 184.108.40.206:
Forwarding occurs only on those queries for which the server is not
authoritative and does not have the answer in its cache.
