You haven't shown us the configuration, so it's hard to tell for sure.
But my guess is that the DMZ hosts are in the same domain as the
internal hosts. A server will never forward for names in a domain it is
authoritative for. You need to have the internal and DMZ hosts in
You could put the internal hosts in a subdomain, like
internal.yourcompany.com. Or you could delegate subdomains for all the
DMZ hosts, e.g.
exthost1 IN NS externalns.yourdomain.com.
exthost2 IN NS externalns.yourdomain.com.
