I have 3 dns servers doing DNS lookups and for speeding up some requests
I'd like to set up forwarding of queries between them.

I've read the documentstion (not the sources) and I see that I can set up
option "forward first". However I am not sure if it won't have negative 
impact on speed of requests that are not in cache of any server.

I'd like to know - what's the timeout before DNS Server sends the requests
to outside after they were sent to peers without reply.
Is it possible to tune the timeout somehow?
