That's exactly how it works. A server never recurses for zones it's
authoritative for. When it receives a query for some other zone, and
the response isn't already cached, it recurses. Recursion queries the
forwarders; if none of them respond, and "forward first" is configured,
it then works its way down from the root servers.
Can you show the evidence that makes you think it's working the opposite
