Greetings all,

A small query on forwarders in bind v9.3.1,

I want to how forwarding feature works,

Eg. I've the following configuration.

   forward first;
   forwarders {

In the above case if the first forwarder doesn't answer queries, the
resolver contacts the second forwarder [OR] will it simply forwards
requests randomly to one of two hosts (like round robin).
I snooped the traffic, the requests are going to two forwarders.

What is the correct behaviour?
