Bind behaves weirdly

I'll try this. At least it will tell me who is guilty.

My idea of using forwarding was for users comfort. Without forwarding =
researches starts from the root servers and some requests takes over =
seconds (the first time of course!), while with forwarding on the ISP's =
(when it works!) the same requests takes a few milliseconds.

I am still interested to figure out what's going wrong between my DNS =
the ISP's DNS. How can I get a trace of exchanges between those two?

Thanks for helping guys!

Better yet, how to resolve the issue. ??

Start with disabling forwarding. You won't need it the only thing you=20
will get is dependency of you forwarders ( which seems to cause you =
